Folly Du Jour - Barbara Cleverly

I love this series and have read them all. This book does not disappoint, We have followed Joe Sandilands from India beginning with the The Last Kashmiri Rose, to London then into France. This book is set in Paris in 1927. It has some great touches, the meeting with Josephine Baker, the hint that this case may inspire Georges Simenon, the fashions etc etc and the re-appearance of a baddy last encountered in India, all woven deftly to make a truly enjoyable who dunnit!

If you love an Agatha Christie style murder mystery I cannot recommend this higher. It is fun, has excellent plotting and keeps you guessing to the end.......
