A Dangerous Engagement : Glamour and murder in Prohibition New York Hardback

Part of the Amory Ames series


Amory Ames is travelling to New York, excited to be a bridesmaid at her friend Tabitha's wedding, but with Prohibition in full swing, her husband Milo is less than enthused.

When a member of the wedding party is found murdered on the front steps of the bride's home, the happy plans take a darker twist.

Amory discovers that the dead man has links to the notorious - and notoriously handsome - gangster Leon De Lora.

While the police seem to think that New York's criminal underworld is at play, Amory feels they can't ignore the wedding guests either.

Milo and Amory are drawn into the glamorous, dangerous world of nightclubs and bootleggers.

But as they draw closer to unravelling the web of lies the murdered man has left in his wake, the killer is weaving a web of his own.
