As friends, the boisterous and brash American Beryl
couldn’t be less alike than the prim and proper British
Edwina. But as sleuths in an England recovering from the
Great War, they’re the perfect match . . .
1920: Flying in the face of convention, legendary American
adventuress Beryl Helliwell never fails to surprise and
shock. The last thing her adoring public would expect is
that she craves some peace and quiet. The humdrum hamlet of
Walmsley Parva in the English countryside seems just the
ticket. And, honestly, until America comes to its senses and
repeals Prohibition, Beryl has no intention of returning
stateside and subjecting herself to bathtub gin.
For over three decades, Edwina Davenport has lived
comfortably in Walmsley Parva, but the post–World War I bust
has left her in dire financial straits and forced her to
advertise for a lodger. When her long-lost school chum Beryl
arrives on her doorstep—actually crashes into it in her red
motorcar—Edwina welcomes her old friend as her new roommate.
But her idyllic hometown has a hidden sinister side, and
when the two friends are drawn in, they decide to set up
shop as private inquiry agents, helping Edwina to make ends
meet and satisfying Beryl’s thirst for adventure. Now this
odd couple will need to put their heads together to catch a
killer—before this sleepy English village becomes their
final resting place . .
