Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Covering a polo match for the Observer , Emma's job is to take note of the real players off the field -- Newport's well-bred elite. But the fashionable facade is breached when a woman in gaudy clothing creates a scene demanding to speak to the wife of Senator George Wetmore -- until she is escorted off the grounds by the police.

Library Journal Review

When a prostitute is found dead in the home of a U.S. senator, Newport society reporter Emma suspects a plot to disgrace him. She enlists help from friends to get into places a proper woman doesn't go in 1897. Fans of historical mysteries will relish Maxwell's fifth series entry (after Murder at Rough Point), with its intricate plot and cast of historical characters.-LH © Copyright 2017.
