A gutsy Manhattan socialite encounters
murder and corruption at the World’s Fair in this captivating historical
cozy mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Susan Elia MacNeal, and
New York City, 1939. A rising star at
the Daily Trumpet, Elizabeth “Biz” Adams has been sent to the World’s
Fair—billed as the “World of Tomorrow,” a look toward a brighter future
even as the drumbeats of war grow louder—to cover a robbery. What she
stumbles upon instead is a dead woman, dumped into the Aquacade’s pool
with a nylon stocking wrapped around her neck.
Elizabeth snaps a photo as the police
arrest Joey Dorman, a gentle young hot dog vendor who made no secret of
his obsession with the murder victim. Even though she’s thrilled that
her photo makes the front page, the fear and confusion evident on Joey’s
face are haunting. So Elizabeth vows to prove his innocence—or his
guilt—with her partner at the Daily Trumpet, Ralph Kaminsky. Meanwhile,
her romance with Detective Sal Marino is heating up, and Elizabeth is
more determined than ever to follow her heart.
But when Kaminsky’s efforts to expose
the real killer land him in the hospital, Elizabeth is forced to
continue the investigation on her own. And as she tries to narrow down
the long list of suspects, she discovers a dark secret running through
the Fair—a secret some would kill to protect.
Look for all of Peg Cochran’s delightful mysteries featuring Elizabeth Adams, which can be read together or separately:
MURDER, SHE REPORTED
MURDER, SHE UNCOVERED
Mystery writing lets Peg indulge her
curiosity under the guise of “work” (aka research). As a kid, she read
the entire set of children’s encyclopedias her parents gave her and has
been known to read the dictionary. She put pen to paper at age seven
when she wrote plays and forced her cousins to perform them at Christmas
dinner. She switched to mysteries when she discovered the perfect
hiding place for a body down the street from her house.
When she’s not writing, she spends her
time reading, cooking, spoiling her granddaughter and checking her
books’ stats on Amazon.
A former Jersey girl, Peg now resides in
Michigan with her husband and Westhighland white terrier, Reg. She is
the author of the Sweet Nothings Lingerie series (written as Meg London), the Gourmet De-Lite series, the Lucille series, the Cranberry Cove series, and the Farmer’s Daughter series.
