Their friendship is cut tragically short, however, when Dolly is found dead in the river, with flowers in her hair and blood on her breast.Rose immediately summons her fiance, investigator Captain Harry Cathcart, to help solve the mystery of Dolly's death - and to keep her from becoming the murderer's next victim.

Review by TheoClarke
Clumsily styled predictable plot involving shallow caricatures in a poorly researched pastiche of Edwardian England. A deeply disappointing book.
Review by riverwillow
Formulaic, but passes the time. The snippets of information about Edwardian life are really annoying.
