The Mitford Trial


If you love the glamour and the old-world charm of the thirties and you haven’t yet discovered Jessica Fellowes’ Mitford Murders series then you’re in for a real treat (but also, where have you been?!).

All four books in the series are dazzling examples of Golden Age Mysteries, following the fictionalised lives of the infamous Mitford sisters – their art, their society and, particularly in this latest, their rather murky politics.

The Mitford Trial is inspired by a real-life murder and sees Louisa Cannon, the recently married former lady’s maid to the Mitfords, accompany the family on a glittering cruise around the Mediterranean. Unbeknownst to her old employers, however, Louisa is actually there on official government orders, tasked with keeping a close eye on Diana Mitford and her burgeoning romance with British Fascist Oswald Moseley. But Louisa gets somewhat distracted when a body shows up on the boat . . .
