Klappentext

All the blissful escapism of a Sunday-night period drama in a book'
The Pool on The Mitford Murders

As the glamour of the Bright Young Things crashes into the world of the Mitford sisters, their maid Louisa Cannon finds herself at the scene of a gripping murder mystery.

Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabble-rousing hedonists of the 1920s whose treasure hunts were a media obsession. One such dangerous game takes place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford, but ends in tragedy as cruel, charismatic Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from the bell tower of the church neighbouring the Mitford home, Asthall Manor.

The police quickly identify the killer as a maid, Dulcie, who is discovered to be a member of a notorious gang of female thieves, the Forty Elephants. But Louisa Cannon, chaperone to the Mitford girls and a former criminal herself, believes Dulcie to be innocent, and alongside Pamela and Nancy Mitford, sets out to clear the girl's name . . . all while the real killer may only be steps away.
