Narrator Aimee Lilly inhabits the character of 17-year-old debutante Violet Strange, who leads a secret life as a private investigator for early-twentieth-century New York society. Here, Violet recounts nine of her cases, or "problems," which range from murder to missing heirs, from unsolved intrigues to long-forgotten rooms. Lilly adopts subtle accents for cultured and sophisticated New Yorkers, New Jerseyites, and Connecticut blue bloods, who are all part of Violet's diverse clientele. Lilly captures Violet's personality as she investigates the mysteries, finding solutions in every instance but one. Verbosity, a rich vocabulary, and complex puzzles, are the hallmarks of the author, a pioneer of the detective story in America. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
