When a man offers 1940s private investigator Maggie Sullivan twice her usual fee to look into a „possible“ jewelry theft from his hotel safe, she’s skeptical — until a maid’s body tumbles out of a trash can and a jeweler known for high quality fakes is murdered. Does a hotel guest who vanished without a trace hold a piece of the puzzle? Or does it have to do with the Polish count and his family fleeing the start of WW2 in Europe? Could the cops be right that it’s all a trick devised by her client?
Ruth Myers hat sich für ihre Krimiserie um die Privatermittlerin Maggie Sullivan eine ungewöhnliche, aber interessante historische Periode ausgesucht, nämlich die Weltwirtschaftskrise ab 1930. “I think what I like best about the books is the solid sense of „place“. Meyers really makes you feel as if you’re in that city and time period. The books aren’t flashy, nor are the characters; they’re „just“ a very good read, perfect for a cold winter’s day beside a warm fire with a couple fingers of good scotch.” (Leser) (58 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 259 Seiten noch günstig?
