This is one of those girly mysteries. The heroin is a modern woman in an old-fashioned, 1920’s New York. She’s a writer who moonlights as an actor in a local theater. Her detective skills are put to the test when a woman who could be her twin (creepy) and who was last seen with the woman’s most arduous suitor (creepier) and is found dead outside the woman’s local pub (creepiest). Can you imagine finding yourself dead in a puddle outside your favorite hangout? I liked the characters in this story, and the mystery was actually mysterious–that’s always a nice touch in a mystery book.
