Fortune Favours the Dead

By Stephen Spotswood

I’ve just read Murder under her skin which follows Fortune Favours the Dead. These books are set in post-WWII USA. Will and Ms Pentacost are two of the most unlikely characters to ever to be drawn as detectives, but detectives they are and they don’t fit that post war mould of what a woman must be. I fell in love with irreverent, feisty, hilarious Will. She reminded me of a wiser, older version of Flavia de Luce from Alan Bradley’s series.
