Publisher's Summary

Set amid the legendary Mitford household, Bright Young Dead is the second audiobook in the thrilling, Golden Age-style Mitford Murders series by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times best-selling Downton Abbey books.  

Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabble-rousing hedonists of the 1920s whose treasure hunts were a media obsession. One such game takes place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford, but ends in tragedy as cruel, charismatic Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from the church neighboring the Mitford home.  

The police quickly identify the killer as a maid, Dulcie. But Louisa Cannon, chaperone to the Mitford girls and a former criminal herself, believes Dulcie to be innocent and sets out to clear the girl's name...all while the real killer may only be steps away.

2nd book even better than the first!

The well thought out plot kept my interest all the way through.
I love all the well imagined characters, both based on real people, as well as the fictional protagonists.
And Rachel Atkins versatile narration really brings all the characters to life!
I couldn't wait each day to start listening and want to read more about the Mitfords and my favorite sleuths!

Not as good as the first book

Too many scenes were almost word for word from Downton Abby. Also many inconsistencies, drive me crazy! Story wasn’t as good as the first book.
