Summary

Midnight treasure hunts, fancy-dress parties, and a blue-blooded murder...

November, 1923. Olive’s school chum Gigi invites Olive to London because Gigi’s dotty grandmother fears for her life - or so she’s said to Gigi. However, Olive is surprised to find that the dowager is far from muddled. The sharp and imperious matriarch refuses to admit to her worries and sends Olive on her way.

Without a client or case, Olive is swept into the glittering lifestyle of the “fast set” and their decadent excess. But then, among the cocktails and champagne, a murderer strikes during a frivolous party game, and Olive realizes the dowager’s fears were well-founded. 

Can Olive unmask the upper crust culprit before the party’s over for a bright, young person?

An Old Money Murder in Mayfair is the fifth installment in the popular High Society Lady Detective series from USA Today best-selling author Sara Rosett. Join Olive and her dapper sleuthing partner Jasper, as they navigate the extravagant parties of the Bright Young People as well as their own budding relationship.

Continuing to improve

Another great mystery, and the glaring Americanisms are getting fewer and fewer (or simply less irritatingly obvious?) as the series progresses.

A good story but let down by American words a d phrases

These type of stories are lovely as light listening but what really let’s this one down, as so many others, is the mistakes in terminology. As British listener, this really grates and detracts from the pleasure. What am I talking about? Well for a story which is supposed to be so very English, it just shouldn’t refer to “sidewalks” but should instead refer to “pavements”. Equally the English say “lift” not “elevator” and we would walk “three streets” not “three blocks”. At least it didn’t say Captain Bryant want dressed in “pants and vest” rather than “trousers and waistcoat” which is another rather obvious and annoying error particularly as pants and vests are underwear to us!!

encreasingly engaging series, looking for the next

Yes Sara, I appreciate and enjoy your historical references and end credits. [I did think Mr. Quigley's parroting was going to provide a clue. :)] Narration is very good. I just wished the background sounds (? rolling tape) wasn't there. Looking forward to the next book with this narrator!

Murder parties and treasure hunts!

This is a wonderful book containing content of the era . Beautiful descriptions of the costumes of the era make the book come alive. The narrator has a lovely voice and I do not tire of it. I can’t wait to see the romantic entanglements develop.

Great Mystery Read

I was excited to see another mystery with Olive finding the culprit. I love the time-period, kudos to the women that went out to work, they had to fight Society! I wanted to kick the Detective Inspector he is a "know-it-all"! I thought I knew who the killer was, but got side-tracked! Finally Olive kisses Jasper. Love this series! can't wait for more! D.T.
