Summary

Kitty Underhay’s dance card is full...of death. 

November 1933. Amateur sleuth-cum-dutiful granddaughter Kitty Underhay stifles a sigh of boredom as she attends the annual Hoteliers' Association Dinner and Dance on behalf of her grandmother, the proprietress of the Dolphin Hotel. She hopes the company of ex-army captain Matthew Bryant will enliven the otherwise dull evening. That is, until bullish and overbearing local councilor Harold Everton drops dead into his bowl of consommé. 

While the local police are still scrambling for their whistles, Kitty and Matt waste no time leaping into action. Soon they find themselves caught up in a dangerous search to uncover who among the distinguished guests used cyanide for seasoning.

When their digging throws light on a corruption scandal brewing in the local council involving Everton’s assistant, Thomas King, they are sure they’ve cracked the case. But before he can be questioned further, King’s body is found in a smoldering car wreck. Meanwhile, the murderer has made a sinister plan to avoid detection or punishment, and it will lead Kitty and Matt into a dangerous dance with death....

A fast, fun Golden Age cozy murder mystery, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, T E Kinsey, and Lee Strauss.

Great series! highly recommended

This is one of those series you hope never ends. The narrator is the best. She gets the spirit of the language and culture without the nauseating cadence of the full on British accent that tends to ruin these cozy mysteries. Very well written, wonderful characters. The tensions and tenderness between Kitty and Matt will keep you hooked as much as the story line.

A Classy and Suspenseful story.

Such a wonderful romantic murder-mystery. As always, a very enjoyable read. My only issue was trying not to confuse the characters as the pronunciation of their names were similar.
