Publisher's Summary

Folies Bergère, Paris, 1927. Joe Sandilands hurries to the assistance of an old friend who has been arrested for murder. In a cell of the Quai des Orfÿvres, he meets with Sir George Jardine, still in the evening dress stained with the blood of the dead man. The only other witness, a blonde who was sharing the victim's box, has vanished.

Assistance for Joe comes from an entirely unexpected quarter: Francine, a young usherette, clawing her way into the world of the Paris Music Hall. It is she who becomes Joe's guide through this treacherous place, where the killer is sure to be lurking.

    "A wonderful step back to the 20s and mystery"

    This series is perfect for those who enjoy a good old fashion mystery from circa 1920. The characters are interesting, the dialogue is great, and the resolution of the mystery is satisfying. Sort of a mixture of The Saint, Bulldog Drummond, and Hercule Poirot.

    "Up to par"

    Once again Joe keeps us 'metaphorically' turning the pages. We meet some old friends/characters and catch some background and links with earlier stories too......... The series whilst appearing to be out of order actually works very well as I started with the newest one and then decided I wanted the whole series and have since started from Book 1, but I find no disadvantage. Overall I just enjoy the clever plots and well drawn people along with interesting little historical asides. This particular tale kept me guessing for a long time..... Enjoy.
