Summary

"True and glorious indulgence. A dazzling example of a golden age mystery." --Daisy Goodwin, author of Victoria and The American Heiress on The Mitford Murders

Set amid the legendary Mitford household, Bright Young Dead is the second in the thrilling, Golden Age-style Mitford Murders series by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times bestselling Downton Abbey books.

Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabble-rousing hedonists of the 1920s whose treasure hunts were a media obsession. One such game takes place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford, but ends in tragedy as cruel, charismatic Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from the church neighbouring the Mitford home.

The police quickly identify the killer as a maid, Dulcie. But Louisa Cannon, chaperone to the Mitford girls and a former criminal herself, believes Dulcie to be innocent, and sets out to clear the girl's name . . . all while the real killer may only be steps away.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In 1925, London is plagued by a gang of female criminals, the Forty Thieves, in Fellowes's solid sequel to The Mitford Murders. Their activity provides an opportunity for advancement for Sgt. Guy Sullivan, whose position with the Metropolitan Police is less than he hoped for. Guy and another underutilized colleague, Constable Mary Moon, go undercover to get the goods on the gang. Guy crosses paths again with Louisa Cannon, a servant to the Mitford family, introduced in the previous book. Louisa has become friendly with Dulcie Long, a maid in another household, who used to belong to the Forty Thieves. That acquaintance proves problematic after Louisa agrees to help Dulcie gain access to the Mitford estate in Oxfordshire so Dulcie can meet privately with Adrian Curtis, the 22-year-old son of Dulcie's employer. The meeting turns heated and proves to be just the precursor to Adrian's murder, under circumstances implicating Dulcie. Fellowes, the author of several Downton Abbey companion books, excels at depicting the inherent tensions between the upper classes and their servants.
