COVER REVEAL: Bright Young Dead by Jessica Fellowes
By Crime HQJune 19, 2018
Set amid the legendary Mitford household, Bright Young Dead is the second in the thrilling, Golden Age-style Mitford Murders series by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times bestselling Downton Abbey books.
Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabble-rousing hedonists of the 1920s whose treasure hunts enrapture the media. One of their games, taking place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford, ends in tragedy as cruel, charismatic Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from the bell tower of the church neighboring the Mitford home, Asthall Manor.
The police quickly identify the killer as a maid, Dulcie, who is discovered to be a member of a notorious gang of female thieves, the Forty. But Louisa Cannon, chaperone of the Mitford girls and a former criminal herself, believes Dulcie is innocent, and alongside Pamela and Nancy Mitford, sets out to clear the girl’s name…all while the real killer lurks, perhaps only around the corner…
