Summary (From the publisher):

Mystery and murder from the age of jazz, the talkies and bright young things

Mike Ashley's brilliant new collection of whodunnits presents 23 stories with all the excitement, escapism and eccenticity of the 1920s. The Roaring Twenties, the Jazz Age, the Age of Wonderful Nonsense - this was the decade when everyone was swept up in the euphoria of getting through the War. For a while the era seemed to have everything going for it, but beneath the dazzle and glitter lay a darker side.

A simply fabulous collection edited by Edgar Award winner Mike Ashley.
