Meet amateur sleuth, Hattie Davish, whose occupation appears to be typist. When her job takes her to Newport, Rhode Island, she looks forward to a bit of vacation. But that is not to be. . .
Hattie’s usual typing gig is cut short, and she is forced to find other work. Enter Charlotte Mayhew, a wealthy social climber in need of a social secretary. When a prominent citizen of Newport is murdered, Mrs. Mayhew asks Hattie to investigate, but only because Mrs. Mayhew wants to be in the know.
Strange. This is the third entry in a series. I was hoping for better, mostly because the setting sounded good. No such luck.
