A Resolution at Midnight by Shelley Noble

The description of Miss Fisher meets Downton Abbey sums up the whole character and flavor of this story. Lady Dunbridge, aristocratic escaping from a tyrant father and an abusive husband now dead has arrived to make a new life for herself. Welcomed by New York society who loves the Engish aristocracy she fits in with her new life but when another murder reins her into an investigation she has to try at least to see that justice is served. With a nice mix of murder and mayhem, corruption in the municipalities and police, the mafia and gangs that operate plus a touch of romance amidst the high flyers of New York society this book had a lot of things going to keep everyone interested. I will be looking out for Lady Dunbridge in the future too. Sent by Macmillan Tor Forge for an unbiased review, courtesy of Netgalley.
