Hasty Death, Paperback
2.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The future's not so rosy for Lady Rose Summer ...Longing for a life of emancipation, Lady Rose Summer has abandoned the comforts of her parent's house to become self supporting.

But life as a working woman isn't quite as liberating as Rose has imagined - fortunately for her, though, her drudgery comes to an end when old acquaintance Freddy Pomfret is murdered and her help - and upper class connections - are required by amateur sleuth Captain Harry Cathcart. So as Rose and Harry prepare to take on the usual Edwardian social rounds, little do they expect to uncover a devious blackmail plot and an unexpected killer.

Review by

Very formulaic, Rose is an Edwardian version of Agatha Raison. I can see that the little snippets of information about Edwardian life are going to become tiresome before too long as I'm reading these to pass the time not to be educated.
