INDIA BLACK, by Carol K Carr
Unfortunately, Bowser had a minder: French, a handsome, purebred dandy who works for the Prime Minister, Disraeli. Caught with the body literally in her grip, India's trying to bluff it out but French merely offers to take the corpse off her hands. And, by the way, where's the old duffer's briefcase? Vanished, along with Arabella, one of India's most productive tarts. The ensuing chase for the highly-explosive contents of the briefcase takes India and French, and the grime-encrusted but engaging Vincent, on a hair-raising journey you won't want to miss. Irreverent, historically accurate (right down to Disraeli's wardrobe), I haven't laughed this much in a long time. This is a Victorian heroine for the twenty-first century. A 5. Read it and laugh.
