Michael Dundas, who combines a flair for detective work with amazing success as a couturier, delves into a mystery with roots laid three generations in the past. The Landreth family closet undoubtedly held a skeleton along with the rest of the old things found in it, just as the envelope with the cryptic figures on it carried the motive, method and solution of the lucky lady’s murder. How did two feathers from that same lady’s hat land in an unused garden, and what, above all, was the antique Dubosq which started the whole chain of murders? Virginia Rath has based her story on an unusual and fascinating episode in the development of American economic life. The author, in a modern, entertaining story has used facts to give body and color to fiction, a clever feat and extremely well done.
Death of a Lucky Lady was published in 1940.
