Description
As they travel by ship to New York for her childhood friend Tabitha's wedding, Amory Ames gazes out at the city's iconic skyline, excited by the prospect of being a bridesmaid. Her husband Milo, however, is convinced their trip will be deadly dull, since Prohibition is in full swing. But when a member of the wedding party is found murdered on the front steps of the bride's home, their happy plans take a darker twist. Amory discovers that the dead groomsman has links to the notorious?and notoriously handsome?gangster Leon De Lora, and soon she and Milo find themselves drawn into another mystery. While the police seem to think that New York's criminal underworld is at play, Amory feels they can't ignore the wedding party either. Tabitha's fiancé Tom Smith appears to be a good man, but he has secrets of his own, and the others in the group seem strangely unaffected by the death of their friend. In an unfamiliar city, not knowing who they can trust, Milo and Amory are drawn into the glamorous, dangerous world of nightclubs and bootleggers. But as they draw closer to unraveling the web of lies and half-truths the murdered man has left in his wake, the killer is weaving a web of his own.

        July 15, 2019
        Weaver’s enjoyable sixth Amory Ames mystery (after 2018’s An Act of Villainy) opens in October 1933 as British socialite Amory and her husband, Milo, arrive in New York City for the wedding of her old friend Tabitha Alden. The always inquisitive Amory wonders how Tabitha’s father, who owns a shipping company, bounced back so quickly from his reversals during the stock market crash and why the prospective groom, Tom Smith, is so cagey about his past. Then Tom’s groomsman Grant Palmer is shot dead in front of the Alden mansion. A womanizer with a shady reputation, Palmer was rumored to be working with bootlegger Leon De Lora, raising the possibility that the death is a gangland hit. While Milo pursues an investigation of his own, Amory poses as a reporter to probe De Lora for clues—but he, like everyone involved in the case, is not who he seems. Weaver pairs a lively plot with colorful glimpses of Manhattan just before Prohibition’s repeal. Both longtime fans and new readers will be pleased. Agent: Ann Collette, Rees Literary.

      • content: It's the 1930s. Listeners join Amory and Milo Ames on their trip to New York City for the wedding of Amory's childhood friend. When one of the groomsmen is murdered, the couple find themselves once again immersed in a mystery. This time they're taken into a world of bootleggers, speakeasies, and gangsters. Narrator Alison Larkin captures the atmosphere of this historical mystery. She especially shines when Amory goes undercover as an American, necessitating an American accent. Larkin succeeds in making this shift without losing any of the authenticity of a well-bred British woman. With a strong pace and good inflections, Larkin makes this audiobook one to appreciate.
