Party Girls Die in Pearls, Hardback Book

Description

Brideshead, bon-bons, cucumber sandwiches - and now a murderPimm's, punting and ball gowns are de rigeur.

Ursula Flowerbutton, a studious country girl, arrives for her first term anticipating nothing more sinister than days spent poring over history books - and, perhaps, an invitation to a ball.

But when she discovers a ghastly crime, she is catapulted into a murder investigation. Determined to unravel the case - and bag her first scoop for the famous student newspaper Cherwell - Ursula enlists the help of her fellow Fresher, the glamorous American Nancy Feingold.

While navigating a whirl of black-tie parties and secret dining societies, the girls discover a surfeit of suspects.

From broken-hearted boyfriends to snobby Sloanes, lovelorn librarians to dishy dons, none can be presumed innocent. Clueless meets Agatha Christie in this wickedly funny tale of high society, low morals and a middle-class girl, the first book in Plum Sykes's irresistible new series.
