Description


The next mystery book in a lively historical cozy series! A Russian prince. A wealthy heir. An impoverished earl's daughter. Which one will make an untimely exit from the London social scene?

"If you like a clever mystery, a handsome ghost, and the far-from-bereaved widow who can't find the elusive killer without Rupert's help, Who's Sorry Now? is just your cup of English murder."—Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge mysteries and the Bess Crawford mysteries

London, England 1925. Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Devenand Hunter finds himself in the middle of a series of upper-class deaths in London. Bright Young People are being extinguished in their favorite night spots, from a sleazy private jazz club to the Savoy ballroom. Dev knows just the person to help him navigate the treacherous society waters: Lady Adelaide Compton, a marquess' daughter and widow of a Great War hero. Beautiful, clever, and kind, Addie is a unique woman—not the least because she's haunted by the irritating ghost of her deceased husband. Unfortunately, Dev has put her in jeopardy once before, nearly leading him to turn in his warrant card.

But Addie is nobody's victim: when her sister Cee is attacked, Addie turns to the inspector, offering her help... and it soon becomes clear that the two of them working together on these Scottish mysteries could lead to much more than merely solving crime.

About the Author


Maggie Robinson is a former teacher, library clerk, and mother of four who woke up in the middle of the night absolutely compelled to create the perfect man and use as many adjectives and adverbs as possible doing so. A transplanted New Yorker, she lives with her not-quite-perfect husband in Maine, where the cold winters are ideal for staying indoors and writing.

Praise For…


"Rupert’s back! And Lady Adelaide still wants to kill him—only he’s already dead. If you like a clever mystery, a handsome ghost, and the far-from-bereaved widow who can’t find the elusive killer without Rupert’s help, Maggie Robinson’s Who’s Sorry Now? is just your cup of English murder. With a large dollop of fun floating on top. " — Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge mysteries and the Bess Crawford mysteries



"Readers will enjoy the lively exchanges between Addie, a thoroughly appealing narrator, and her two admirers, exasperating Rupert and smitten Devenand. Fans of witty, romance-infused paranormal historicals will have fun." — Publishers Weekly
