Murder and High Society Mix It Up in the ‘20s I enjoy reading mysteries and have enjoyed reading stories set in the 1920s since reading F. Scott Fitzgerald. And so it was easy to pick “Death of a Flapper” by Marva Dale as my next read. The story takes place in the ‘20s and involves a private detective (J.C. Brogan) who is hired to find out what happened to a missing flapper, Arabella Germain (nickname Angel). The investigation takes him other flappers, mobsters, an artist, and a high society crowd that enjoys partying most of all. The author takes us into speakeasies and jazz clubs, introduces us to bootleggers, and weaves an intricate plot of lies, cover-up, violence and romance. Marva Dale, though J.C. Grogan, takes us through a list of suspects who know something about Angel’s disappearance and death and carefully leads the reader to the ultimate revelation of who actually done it. This is such an enjoyable read that I am going to look into other Marva Dale books to put on my future reading list.
