Set in December of 1924, a senior editor at Healcroft House Frank Selby turns up dead in his apartment. Problem is, his secretary, Kathy Briscow, never mentioned that he hadn't been at work for the previous three days. Seems he only came in when he wanted, and since Kathy was doing his work for him, it didn't matter. But now, Kathy is the main suspect in his murder. Author and socialite Freddie Little finds out that Kathy has been editing his novel, and not Selby. Freddie also has reason to suspect someone else. So he convinces Kathy to work with him to find the real killer. Together, the two comb the streets and speakeasies of New York City to find a killer with obsession on the brain.

Fascinating Rhythm by Anne Louise Banno Set in 1924 New York City, Kathy Briscow is an editor for Frank Selby. When he ends up dead, murdered, Kathy becomes the number one suspect. She is determined to clear her name and find the real killer. Kathy is editing the book by Freddie Little, he thinks he knows who killed Selby so the two team up to try to solve this mystery. A fast paced well written who-done-it. I really like Kathy. She was a strong willed woman, and more liberated than most women of that era. I also like that the story was set in 1924, the era of prohibition. The New York City setting adds pizzazz as well. That made the story (for me) more interesting. The story is fresh, it has a "classic" mystery feel to it. I also enjoyed the duo of Kathy and (socialite) Freddie Little. Together they made a great pair of "junior sleuths". Overall I feel those who love a great (who-done-it) mystery will enjoy Fascinating Rhythm.
