Half of Bloomsbury wanted her dead – but who wielded the knife?
London, 1922. When Marjorie Swallow attends a bohemian party with her new employer Mrs Jameson, she enjoys dancing, witty conversation, and the attentions of a handsome artist. But for one guest, the night ends in murder. The victim is quickly unmasked as a blackmailer – but which of her targets wanted her dead badly enough to cut her throat?
The detective duo go on an increasingly perilous hunt for the killer from the garden squares of Bloomsbury to the smart nightclubs of Piccadilly and the seedy backstreets of Soho.
Can they save an innocent man from the gallows? Is it ever a good idea to blackmail a murderer? And are Marjorie’s new satin shoes ruined forever?
