In 1907 New York, Lady Philomena, the adventurous 25-year-old Dowager Countess of Dunbridge, once again is called upon by her benefactor to investigate a murder. Narrator Erin Bennett expertly guides listeners through various social strata when the heir to a steel magnate is murdered at a debutante ball. Bennett gives listeners a view of the various classes of the Gilded Age, including the cream of society, their servants, a detective, and street urchins. Notable characters include Philomena's feisty lady's maid; her staid butler, who has many surprising gifts; and the newsboy known as "Just a Friend." With the murderer's many potential motives, Bennett must make even complex financial issues comprehensible to listeners. She keeps the suspense building until the last minute.
