Viviana Valentine Goes Up The River by Emily J. EDwards

The title alone sounded quirky. The story too. Viviana is detective partner with Tommy. It is 1950s New York and society still has very clear demarcations of what ladies can and cant do. Invited by Buster, a wealthy businessman of science to a weekend party - this is a cover for what Buster actually wants tgem to do. Find out how, why and where strange sounds emanate from empty rooms in his mansion at all odd times of the day and night. Seemed a bit of a weak start but the characters at the party were all amusing, all had agendas of their own and despite the murder of one of the guests, everything seemed too light hearted to be taken seriously. A bit of a letdown. Sent by Crooked Lane Books for an unbiased review, courtesy of Netgalley.
