Detective Inspector Caius Beauchamp and his team are back in their second mystery. This one has the team assigned to two cold cases at the urging of a Member of Parliament.

The first cold case has to do with the disappearance of a young girl named Eliza Chapel from St. Ursula's School for Young Ladies in Cornwall. The second cold case has to do with a missing chief executive, his secretary/lover, and a missing multi-millionaire pension fund.

The first case comes to the team when Caius attends the theater and winds up sitting next to the corpse of an amateur detective who was fascinated with the case of the missing girl. The second case finds him when a rowing crew discover the body of a woman while they are practicing. The woman turns out to be the missing secretary who has returned from Brazil.

Caius also meets a woman at the theater and begins a relationship. However, as the investigation continues, the team discovers that Callie has connections to both of the cold cases, and she believes that her new relationship with Caius is a set up.

This was a very twisty mystery with new secrets revealed as the story progresses. I enjoyed this one very much and am eager for more adventures.

A real thumb-your-nose look at the uber-rich and a laugh riot of investigations among the snobs. Laughed my sox off!

This is fun, if a bit ridiculous, but that's really what makes it fun I guess. Wealthy people being idiots. A bit Glass Onion, a bit Christie, a bit pretentious. But I thought it came together nicely and enjoyed how the lives of the wealthy idiots unraveled.

As we age it becomes increasingly unbelievable that the bizarre young people we read about are actually normal young people being culturally normal. For example, I recently met a federal employee with tunnel plug earrings in his ears and lavender nail polish on his fingers. Not my style but I found it amusing that I was startled.

Here we realize that the London Police force must also have young people in it. These young people are interested in the same things other young people are interested in - designer furniture, vegan food, and running regimens - and that their being young and from a different world does not interfere with their ability to solve crimes.

This book is about young coppers solving crimes involving their chronological contemporaries who happen to be filthy rich.

I received a review copy of this book through NetGalley.com.
