Scandal at the Savoy : A Priscilla Tempest Mystery, Book 2

Scandal at the Savoy: A Priscilla Tempest Mystery, Book 2

Prudence Emery, Ron Base
$19.95 Regular price


The rich and famous are converging on the iconic Savoy Hotel in swinging ’60s London—including a famous Broadway producer with anger issues, a demanding Indian raja, and a gorgeous film star with certain kinky predilections. All is as it should be—until the murder of a showgirl threatens to scandalize the hotel.

The list of suspects includes Priscilla Tempest, the trouble-prone Canadian head of the Savoy press office. Clearing her name would be easy enough, if only she hadn’t spent the night of the murder with a certain beguiling Canadian prime minister.

Blackmailed by a Scotland Yard detective, wooed by a notorious gangster and hounded by the press, Priscilla must use wit and resourcefulness to survive the treacherous upper echelons of London society and find a killer.

This is the thrilling sequel to Death at the Savoy, described by Publishers Weekly as “light, frothy…perfect escapist fare.”


 

“The return of the glamorous Priscilla Tempest in Scandal at the Savoy is an occasion for great celebration. In a fast-moving mystery novel that seizes the reader from the first page, featuring unforgettable characters (including some celebrity guest stars brought to life with wit and a deftness that is both delightful and eerily vivid) Prudence Emery and Ron Base have performed a skillful literary pas-de-deux, all the while free-pouring late-60s London nostalgia that is as dry and crisp as Moët. This novel is the party you always knew was happening and always wished you’d been invited to, and Priscilla Tempest is the most captivating redhead since Brenda Starr. My advice? Turn off the phone, dim the lights, pour yourself a flute of champagne, and let Scandal take you away.”
