Death of a Flapper by Marva Dale

Death Of A Flapper (Death By Decades) by Marva Dale immerses the reader in to the 1920s complete with a noir feel. The detective, the damsel in distress, mobsters, class division, and blurred lines inhabit the pages of Death of a Flapper. Dale creates a world filled with characters the reader will love to hate and hate to love - sometimes the same character at different points in the book. Private Detective Carney Brogan's obsession with murdered flapper, Alice Prado aka Arabella Germaine, goes beyond solving her murder as struggles with his own reaction to a portrait of her. As he investigates all possibilities, the reader alternately hope the murderer is one character and then the next creating a whirlwind of emotions as the story progresses.
