The second book in the delightfully witty crime series set in late 19th century bohemian Paris, following the adventures of Bertie, Prince of Wales.

In 1890 twelve guests gather at Desborough Hall for a week’s shooting party hosted by the beautiful Lady Amelia Hammond. Months of planning have left nothing to chance, for the main guests are the Prince and Princess of Wales. But events take a sinister turn when the vivacious Queenie Chimes collapses face down in the chef’s lovingly created bombe-glacée. More deaths follow and clues planted on the bodies point shockingly to a final tally of seven, one for each day of the week. Bertie is compelled to investigate.

Reviews

Literary Review
Funny, ingenious and royally entertaining
Marcel Berlins, The Times
High-class Victorian entertainment written with wit
Sunday Express
A delightful and amusing period piece, particularly in the interplay between the libidinous Bertie and his rather more intelligent wife, Alexandra, who stoically endures his inclination to dally with anything in skirts
Cleveland Plain Dealer
Seamlessly plotted, populated with a dynamic cast, and often howlingly funny
