Death in Soho
Death in Soho | Emily Organ
3 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
It's the Roaring Twenties. London's bright young things are partying, Soho's nightlife is buzzing and Augusta Peel is hiding in her basement. She has a reason to hide there: it's home to her Bloomsbury workshop where she repairs old, neglected books. After a busy time during the war, all Augusta wants is peace and quiet - even if it is routinely disturbed by the tube trains beneath her feet. But events take a turn when Augusta agrees to chaperone 19-year-old Harriet Jones on a date. Failing to get her home on time, she ends up in a riotous nightclub. She can't imagine the evening getting much worse when the police raid it. But then the murder happens. Who shot Jean Taylor? An old acquaintance at Scotland Yard learns Augusta was near the murder scene and persuades her to help with his investigation. But how can a humble book repairer navigate Soho's world of actresses, gangsters and theatre impresarios to discover the truth?

I have been in Westerly RI with my family & our “bestie” family friends. Been busy making meals together, beaching together, etc. only reading getting done before bed- so very little! Before We left I had finished up the top row of books. I only brought with me Last Summer at the Golden Hotel & Death in Soho is on my phone. I may not get to Levertov or Ghosts until I return home. #sundaybuddyread #July10toJuly16

Cinfhen Enjoy your time with friends and family 💗books will always be there😉 4w
