Murder Most Malicious by Alyssa Maxwell

Due to the high number of causalities and disabled veterans, World War I forever changed England. One of the more positive transformations reflected in Murder Most Malicious by Alyssa Maxwell is the breaking down of class barriers. At Lady Phoebe Renshaw’s family estate, Foxwood Hall, the Marquis of Allerton is missing. Though he is a thoroughly unpleasant man that no one misses except his mother, he must be found. The local police suspect a footman, but Lady Phoebe believes the young man innocent. Lady Phoebe joins forces with her maid, Eva Huntford to find out what exactly happened to the Marquis of Allerton. This is a charming historical mystery with two strong female characters and an authentic sense of time and place. Recommend to Downton Abbey fans!
