Praise for Barbara Cleverly: "Spectacular and dashing, spellbinding."-- The New York Times Book Review "Smashing . . . marvelously evoked."-- Chicago Tribune "A historical mystery that has just about everything."-- Denver Post "Cleverly maintains the high standards set by earlier Sandilands tales, blending a sophisticated whodunit with full-blooded characters and a revealing look at her chosen time and place."-- Publishers Weekly (starred) "Atmospheric . . . intricately plotted."-- Kirkus Reviews "Evocative narrative, sensitive characterizations, artful dialogue, and masterly plottings."-- Library Journal "Cleverly combines a colorful historical setting with a complex plot and well-developed characters."-- Booklist "Delightfully surprising."-- Mystery News This seventh book in the Joe Sandilands murder mystery series is set at the Folies-Berg#65533;re, Paris, in December 1926.

The only other witness, a blonde who was sharing the victim's box, has vanished. Joe receives assistance from an entirely unexpected quarter--Francine, a young usherette, clawing her way into the world of the Paris Music Hall. She becomes Joe's guide through this treacherous place, where Joe is sure the killer is lurking.
