A murder mystery with the fascinating, glamorous Mitford sisters at its heart, the fourth installment in the Mitford Murders series is inspired by a real-life murder in this story full of intrigue, affairs and betrayal.
In 1933, a few months after the Nazis take power in Germany, former Mitford family servant Louisa Cannon is approached by Iain, a British government agent, in bestseller Fellowes’s subpar fourth Mitford Murders mystery ... Flash-forwards to a murder trial with two defendants in 1935 inject some suspense, but this isn’t enough to make up for an uninspired plot. Series fans will hope for a return to form next time.
