Product description

From the Publisher

The London of 1925 is a city like no other, before or since. As the country recovers from the devastation of war, citizens of the nation’s capital seek refuge in good company, music, and dancing. But in T E Kinsey’s London, that hedonistic reprieve is tempered by something more sinister. A military deserter stalks one of the most fashionable clubs in Mayfair, where it is suspected he has hidden a fortune’s worth of stolen diamonds. And it doesn’t take long before blood is spilled on the ballroom floor.

As the pulsing mystery at the heart of this story wove in and out of the pages, I was immediately swept up by it. This captivating environment was drawn in a way I’d never witnessed before: the sights, sounds, and scents I could almost experience myself. Rather than serving as window dressing, this literary texture pulled me in deeper to the dark mystery waiting in the shadows.

And, as the truth revealed itself, I was left feeling even more impressed with Kinsey’s world—a world that lives and breathes not in spite of the peril these characters find themselves in but because of it. All that glitters is not gold in this novel, which makes it all the more worthwhile to enjoy yourself.

- Jack Butler, Senior Editor

About the Author

T E Kinsey grew up in London and read history at Bristol University. He worked for a number of years as a magazine features writer before falling into the glamorous world of the Internet, where he edited content for a very famous entertainment website for quite a few years more. After helping to raise three children, learning to scuba dive, and to play the drums and the mandolin (though never, disappointingly, all at the same time), he decided the time was right to get back to writing. The Deadly Mystery of the Missing Diamonds is the first novel in the Dizzy Heights series, which follows on from his Lady Hardcastle Mystery series. His website is at tekinsey.uk and you can follow him on Twitter—@tekinsey—as well as on Facebook: www.facebook.com/tekinsey.
