When her father killed himself after the stock market crash of 1929, Kitty Pangborn's life changed forever. Raised to be a debutante, she was forced to get a job as a secretary for Los Angeles P.I. Dex Theroux where her biggest concern is making sure her boss solves enough cases to keep her in paychecks--though that's not always as easy as it sounds.

Set during preparation for the 1932 Olympic games, in Death Was in the Blood, Kitty finds herself trying to discover who is threatening a young equestrienne aiming to be the first horsewoman to compete at the Olympic level. Kitty finds herself back in the social class she was raised to, only now she's expected to come in the service entrance.

About the Author:

Linda L. Richards is an author and journalist as well as the founding editor of the book-devoted online publication, January Magazine. She is the author of several award-winning and bestselling works of fiction and non-fiction.

From Booklist:

It’s 1931 in Los Angeles, and preparations are being made for next year’s Olympics. It’s the height of the Depression, and when debutante Kitty Pangborn’s father, a single parent, committed suicide on the day the stock market crashed, her days as a pampered rich girl ended. Now she works as a secretary at a detective agency. When her boss, Dex Theroux, gets drunk instead of meeting a new client, Kitty takes the case herself. The very wealthy Matty Sweet is concerned because his girlfriend, Flora Woodruff, a skilled equestrian, has been getting threatening notes. Someone is trying to scare her and prevent her from becoming the first horsewoman to qualify for the Olympics. Soon, Kitty is back in the familiar land of the rich and powerful, but this time as hired help. After Flora’s fine Hanoverian horse, Fritzy, disappears, Kitty poses as Flora’s friend, putting herself directly in harm’s way. Richards has created a memorable character in Kitty Pangborn, and libraries should stock the entire nifty series (Death Was the Other Woman, 2008, and Death Was in the Picture, 2009). --Shelley Mosley
