What you need to know before your trail

Lena Aldridge is wondering if life has passed her by. The dazzling theatre career she hoped for hasn’t worked out. Instead, she’s stuck singing in a sticky-floored basement club in Soho and her married lover has just left her. She has nothing to look forward to until a stranger offers her the chance of a lifetime: a starring role on Broadway and a first-class ticket on the Queen Mary bound for New York.

After a murder at the club, the timing couldn’t be better and Lena jumps at the chance to escape England. Until death follows her onto the ship and she realises that her greatest performance has already begun.

Because someone is making manoeuvres behind the scenes, and there’s only one thing on their mind… MURDER

Travel Guide

London 1930s

Oh London in the 1930s with its shady clubs, smoky rooms and drinks a plenty. It sounds wonderful – in the book at least – there are dubious characters in the shadows but the glamour and the glitz can not be ignored.

The Canary club in the book is fictional but there are many similar in Soho in and around Berwick street and Dean Street. Dean Street is the street of jazz which Miss Aldridge likes.

They take the ferry from Southampton across the ocean to New York and there is a brief chapter in New York – this is where the next book will take over.
