Maureen CorriganThe secret is out by now that Ironside is the nom de plume of Lady Catherine Manning, the wife of David Manning, Britain's ambassador to the United States. In a way, it's too bad that Ironside has been less successful in preserving the mystery of her identity than her notorious creation Diana. Mystery readers are a naturally suspicious lot, and many may assume that Manning/Ironside is a mere dilettante whose way into publication was eased by her husband's connections. A few minutes spent reading the first pages of this superb mystery will blow that snarky hypothesis to smithereens.
