    This is the fourth Golden Age–style mystery (after The Mitford Scandal, 2020 to feature the six singular Mitford sisters and their ever-resourceful lady's maid, Louisa. The year is now 1933, and newlywed Louisa, studying stenography and settling into life as Mrs. Guy Sullivan, is recruited by MI-5 to keep an eye on the two fascist-leaning Mitford sisters who have fallen under the spell of Adolf Hitler. Louisa escorts Diana and Unity, along with their mother, Lady Redesdale, on an elegant Mediterranean cruise. Louisa's police-detective husband shows up to surprise her, but instead of enjoying a romantic tryst, they find themselves investigating a murder onboard while Louisa struggles to keep a sulking Unity, unhappy to be thwarted in a budding romance with a Nazi SS officer, in line. Inspired by the larger-than-life Mitford family and a real-life murder, Fellowes delivers a ripping-good read. Rich in detail, it moves steadily to its sad ending, leaving Louisa in possession of dark secrets that she will carry for the rest of her life. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
