Susannah Stapleton

The Adventures of Maud West, Lady Detective

Published by: Picador

A very entertaining investigation of the mysterious Maud of the title. Highly impressive research, carried out with wit and frankness, shines light both on the title character but also on England in the 1920s and the social mores around divorce, infidelity, blackmail and class.
