Philomena (Phil) Amesbury, Dowager Countess of Dunbridge, is living in 1907 New York City at the Plaza Hotel, courtesy of an unknown benefactor in return for her investigative services—her only contact a man she calls Mr. X. Phil is called upon by Gwen Pratt when Perry Fauks, the heir to Fauks Copper, Coal and Steel, is found dead, stuffed in the laundry chute after her daughter's debut party at their home. Encouraged by Mr. X and assisted by her butler and her resourceful lady's maid, Phil investigates, to the annoyance of Detective Sergeant John Atkins, even though his superiors tie his hands to avoid upsetting the Pratts and their guests. At a house party on Long Island where Phil is a guest, Phil connects the clues to unmask a killer. A richly described historical setting provides the backdrop for the tale, in which Phil—a young widow who is a smart, egalitarian woman of the world, welcome at the homes of the elite—uses her social advantages to good advantage. Phil is reminiscent of Anne Perry's Charlotte Pitt and L.A. Chandlar's Lane Sanders. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

The New York Times best-selling Noble follows up her "Lady Dunbridge" series starter, Ask Me No Questions, with the modern merry-widow heroine ready to take on Gilded Age Manhattan. And with the stunning Plaza Hotel and Metropolitan Museum of Art as backdrop, there's bound to be mayhem, murder, and a touch of romance.

LJ Reviews 2019 November

The second "Lady Dunbridge" mystery (following Ask Me No Questions) is a witty, entertaining romp through elite society in early 20th-century New York. Philomena Amesbury reflects on her fortunate new life as a happily widowed aristocrat enjoying her freedom and luxurious lifestyle at the Plaza Hotel, courtesy of a shadowy agency requiring her crime-solving skills. The mysterious Mr. X tells Phil to expect a visitor, and Luther Pratt duly arrives in need of her services, as he fears social and financial scandal ensuing from the suspicious death of Perry Fauks, heir to an industrial empire, at his daughter's debut. Phil gathers her team: Lily, her enigmatic lock-picking maid, and Preswick, her proper English butler with a penchant for detective novels. Meanwhile, Phil, her cohorts, and handsome Det. Sergeant Atkins collaborate to solve multiple crimes and avert the collapse of a fragile financial market. VERDICT Wonderful period detail and clever humor combine with the delicious romantic tension between Phil and both Mr. X and Atkins to create a tasty recipe for fun reading. Historical mystery buffs and fans of amateur sleuths will eagerly await the next Lady Dunbridge adventure. [See Prepub Alert, 4/22/19.]—Barbara Clark-Greene, Westerly, RI
