This is a ghost story, so that can be an instant turn-off for some (including me), but I saw revues on it that said it was really good, so I tried it. It was not a disappointment at all. It held my interest and, as it happens with books i enjoy, I couldn't put it down by the time I was half way through. It's humorous, exciting and very believable. Highly recommend, even if you don't like "ghost" stories.
This is the third part of the 1920s based trilogy about flappers. I have enjoyed all of them, and if you like historical fiction, I think you will like this. It picks up the story of 3 girls who started out as friends, flappers, and how they go their separate ways. In this one, there is a lot of mobster spying going on and they run across each other again. Larkin spends time describing their clothing styles, make-up and their surroundings, which is fun if you enjoy learning details of different eras.
