The second Edwardian mystery featuring Dorinda Alexander by Lesley Cookman.

When the recently widowed Lady Amelia Washington comes to Nethergate’s Alexandria theatre, its proprietor Dorinda has her suspicions that this is more than just a passing visit.

Dorinda’s old friend Lady Ivy has suggested to Amelia that Nethergate’s quiet seaside setting would make the perfect retreat from the pressures of life in society – and with both ladies having a background in the music halls, Dorinda’s troupe seems like the perfect place to blend in and get away from it all. 

It seems like a reasonable story – but in that case, why are the police so interested in speaking to Lady Amelia – and what secrets do she and her retinue hide?
