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 Orfà vres, 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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene | 2/19/2014

    " fun book, a cross between historical fiction and murder mystery. The murder takes place in a theater in Paris during a performance by Josephine Baker on the same night that Lindbergh lands. Very "soft" compared to other murder mysteries, but likeable enough to take out others in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 2/2/2014

    " Another in this enjoyable series. Takes place in Paris with many of the characters from the Indian ones. Lots of twists & turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/2/2014

    " This one had a good surprise ending! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita Vandenburgh | 1/16/2014

    " A good mystery set in early Paris! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madonna | 1/10/2014

    " Pretty good mystery--George caught in a mess like this??? I never doubted that Joe would clear him. I regretted some of the other deaths, but they just showed how evil the villain was. "

    " Well done piece by Cleverly. Very 20's. Am looking forward to another of these light but well done pieces by this author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elisabeth | 12/16/2013

    " I got tired of this book. It was confusing at times and not interesting enough to make me want to finish. That rarely happens to me. I almost always finish a book I start. However, this one slipped away from me and I don't think I'll take it up again. "

    " A delightful engaging puzzle set in the golden age, and I like the central characters Joe Sandilands and George Jardine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/18/2012

    " Not as good as her early books in this series, but interesting because she has Joe Sandilands interact with historical characters living in Paris at the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penny | 4/14/2012

    " This is more detective fiction in the Joe Sandilands series. This one is set in Paris and has plenty of twists and turns. I preferred the India based ones though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 4/13/2012

    " First mystery novel for a long time that I didn't guess the who done it!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 2/3/2012

    " Let's just put it this way....I have found a new author. I went back and got the first of this series The Kashmiri Rose. I'm hoping that all the books are this good. "

    " I do love the Sandilands mysteries, but this one didn't deliver for me somehow. I didn't buy the solution. Strange. Still a good journey to the end. "

    " I like to read mystery, and this is the first time I've read this author. I'll probably read more of her, but not one of my favorite mystery/crime writers. "

    " I've read most of this series. They are historical aristocratic English mysteries. I like the historical info, the writing is smooth, and the stories are engaging. This wasn't my favorite though.
    Recommend: adult "
