Bedford Green confronts lions, the prince of Wales, and an ugly murder in Kenya.
It's a beautiful day in Greenwich Village, and for once Bedford Green is selling paintings. Business is booming, and this gossip columnist turned art dealer owes it all to his invaluable assistant, Sloane - who goes and spoils the fun by announcing that she's leaving on safari.
Sloane is a Midwestern girl and has never laid eyes on any animal more exotic than a house cat, but she can't resist her uncle Dixon's invitation to visit Kenya to hobnob with everyone from the department-store king of Chicago to the prince of Wales. Green thinks it sounds dreadfully dangerous - which means he has no choice but to go with her. The safari is cut short, however, when Sloane's aunt is found dead in the arms of a married man, and Dixon is arrested for murder. Freeing him will take every ounce of Green's charm - and may end with this out-of-place gadfly in chains.
A Sinful Safari is the third book in the Bedford Green Mysteries, but you may enjoy the series in any order.
