To say that Divisional Detective Inspector Ernie Hardcastle is not pleased when he's assigned to find missing teenager Lily Musgrave is definitely an understatement. Missing-person cases are for the likes of the uniform branch to handle, not senior policemen like Hardcastle. However, Hardcastle's boss is adamant that since Lily's father, an MP, is a close friend of the police commissioner, only a top cop can take the case. Grudgingly, the irascible Hardcastle and his long-suffering sergeant, Charles Marriott, launch an investigation that reveals Miss Musgrave to be a young lady who loves to "entertain" men for the price of a fancy dinner. When Lily returns home of her own volition, Hardcastle is very happy to be rid of the case—until Lily goes missing again, this time with a dreadful outcome. Set in London at the end of WWI, Ison's latest in his popular series of historical police procedurals is engaging, as always, and a good choice for fans of Charles Todd's two series set in the WWI era, one starring Bess Crawford and the other, Ian Rutledge.

Set in 1919, Ison's earnest 14th Hardcastle and Marriott historical (after 2016's Hardcastle's Collector) charts the effects of the Great War's end on England: unemployment, strikes, rationing, and radical changes in expectations of a woman's place in society. Against this backdrop, and while preparing for his daughter's wedding, Det. Insp. Ernest Hardcastle, head of the CID for the Whitehall Division of London's Metropolitan Police—assisted by his intelligent and long-suffering sidekick, Det. Sgt. Charles Marriott—looks into the disappearance of Lily Musgrave, the 17-year-old daughter of a wealthy MP. Lily has embraced the flapper style of dress and mores with abandon, kohling her eyes, shortening her skirts, and consorting with cads. Lily eventually surfaces alive and well, but then goes missing again. Hardcastle threatens and cajoles his way through lies and misdirection until he literally digs up the truth. The book's villain comes somewhat out of left field, but Hardcastle, crusty and arrogant but astute, is a memorable lead. (June)
