The stylish, charming new novel in the Edgar-nominated Amory Ames mystery series, set in 1930s New York. As they travel by ship to New York for her childhood friend Tabithas wedding, Amory Ames gazes out at the citys 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 brides home, the happy plans take a darker twist. Amory discovers that the dead groomsman has links to the notoriousand notoriously handsomegangster Leon De Lora, and soon she and Milo find themselves drawn into another mystery. While the police seem to think that New Yorks criminal underworld is at play, Amory feels they cant ignore the wedding party either. Tabithas fianc 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.

Amory and Milo Ames are a wonderfully complicated crime-solving couple, and this sixth addition to the series was a clever one. It finds them leaving British soil for a friend‘s wedding in NYC. Someone is murdered (literally on their doorstep), and Amory can‘t resist sleuthing. We are introduced to an interesting gangster that I hope will show up in England at some point in the future. Much enjoyed! 4/5⭐️
