really liked it

The Jazz Files by Fiona Veitch Smith is set in 1920 and introduces Poppy Denby, a budding journalist, who's thrown into the deep end on her first day when one of the journalists falls from a high balcony in the atrium at The Daily Globe. Was it an accident or was it something to do with the story he's investigating - the death of a suffragette seven years previously? This is a crime mystery, with plenty plot twists and turns. It's rather sweet, like slipping into a warm bath. Real historical personalities are woven into the fiction given a very strong sense of the era, and the style of writing also harks back to the fiction earlier times, and reminds me of a Tommy and Tuppence Agatha Christie novel. A lovely way to spend a winter evening.
