BRIGHT YOUNG DEAD is the second book in the Mitford Murders mystery series by Jessica Fellowes.
Set amid the legendary Mitford household, the second in the thrilling, Golden Age-style Mitford Murders series by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times bestselling Downton Abbey books.
Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabble-rousing hedonists of the 1920s whose treasure hunts were a media obsession. One such game takes place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford, but ends in tragedy as cruel, charismatic Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from the church neighbouring the Mitford home.
The police quickly identify the killer as a maid, Dulcie. But Louisa Cannon, chaperone to the Mitford girls and a former criminal herself, believes Dulcie to be innocent, and sets out to clear the girl's name . . . all while the real killer may only be steps away.
Jessica's career began at the Mail on Sunday as a celebrity interviewer and lifestyle editor, before going on to be Deputy Editor of Country Life magazine. There she wrote the weekly Town Mouse column as well as a townie's guide to country weekends for The London Paper, the latter of which formed the basis of her first book, Mud & the City.
Jessica lives in Oxfordshire with her family and an energetic Labradoodle but remains a Londoner at heart, the place where her heels remain blissfully mud free.
