Murder in Belgravia by Lynn Brittney
Book One in the Mayfair 100 Series
LONDON, MAY 1915
Just 10 months into the First World War, the city is flooded with women taking over the work vacated by the men who have volunteered for the Armed Services.
Chief Inspector Beech, invalided out of the war in one of the first battles, is faced with the murder of an aristocrat, whose wife will only speak to a woman about the sordid details of the case.
So, Beech sets up an unusual, clandestine, team of female detectives and policemen. Their contact telephone number is MAYFAIR 100.
