Set against the backdrop of Cannes during the Belle poque, this mystery draws listeners into a world of intrigue, deception and contrasts. Narrator Elizabeth Knowelden brings the broad cast of characters alive, including men and women of diverse backgrounds. Lola, a courtesan who is fighting hard to elevate her position in life, and her companion, Gabriella, a disgraced upper-class English woman, join forces to investigate a murder. Knowelden portrays the two protagonists with ease, emphasizing the light and slightly carefree character of Lola and the more reserved nature of Gabriella. Knowleden's authentic-sounding pronunciation of French names helps to immerse the listener in the plot and illuminates the contrasts between the rich and poor of France at this time.
