A high-profile murder propels a unique crime-fighting team into the dark environs of London's underworld--and on a terrifying quest to track a ruthless killer

London, 1915. As World War I engulfs Europe, a special task force is formed in the affluent Mayfair district to tackle the city's thorniest crimes against women. When the bobbies and Scotland Yard come up short, there's only one telephone number to dial: Mayfair 100.

An aristocrat has been murdered, and his wife, a witness and possible suspect, will only talk to a woman. With the blessing of London's Chief Commissioner, Chief Inspector Beech, a young man invalided out of the war, assembles a crew of sharp, intrepid, and well-educated women to investigate. But to get at the truth, Beech, Victoria, Caroline, Rigsby, and Tollman will venture into the the city's seedy underbelly, a world where murder is only the first in a litany of evils.

Lynn Brittney's Mayfair 100 series debut, Murder in Belgravia , is the darkly compelling story of a movement far ahead of its time, in an attempt to combat the prejudices against women then and now.

One of the best books in a long time for a historical UK murder mystery. Couldn't stop reading, Great character building; intriguing story and insightful description of time period.

Can't wait for her next book--Death in Chelsea.

There was a huge opioid crisis in 1915; caused by -you guessed it- a corrupt and incompetent medical profession.
Sadly over a hundred years later we still struggle with the same problems and injustices they did in 1915. In addition to murder; organized crime, domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual exploitation of woman, children and young men. These are dealt with by good old fashion police brutality.
