Description

<p><b>Rachel Savernake faces her most puzzling murder yet in this glamorous gothic mystery from the winner of the CWA Diamond Dagger.</b></p><p><i>'This is my challenge for you,' the woman in white said. 'I want you to solve my murder.'</i></p><p><b>London, 1930s:</b> Rachel Savernake has been invited to a private view of an art exhibition at a fashionable gallery. The artist, Damaris Gethin, known as 'the Queen of Surrealism', is debuting a show featuring live models pretending to be waxworks of famous killers. Before her welcoming speech, Damaris asks a haunting favour of the amateur sleuth: she wants Rachel to solve her murder. As Damaris takes to a stage set with a guillotine, the lights go out. There is a cry and the blade falls. Damaris has executed herself.</p><p>While Rachel questions why Damaris would take her own life – and just what she meant by 'solve my murder' – fellow party guest Jacob Flint is chasing a lead on a glamorous socialite with a sordid background. As their paths merge, this case of false identities, blackmail, and fedora-adorned doppelgängers, will descend upon a grand home on Sepulchre Street, where nothing – and no one – is quite what it seems.</p><p><b>Praise for Martin Edwards:</b></p><p>'Superb – a pitch-perfect blend of Golden Age charm and sinister modern suspense... This is the book Edwards was born to write.' <b>Lee Child</b> <br />
'Edwards has managed, brilliantly, to combined a Golden Age setting with a pace that is bang up-to-date.' <b>Peter James</b></p>
