We're plunged into 1930s high society, riddled with blackmail, drugs and wicked little gambling dens. Girls have gone back to being chaperoned, and wives are deceiving their husbands. It's all rather sordid, and then Lord Robert gets suffocated in a taxi on the way back from the heady, glittering, gossiping Carrados ball. Hear all about the social humiliation that Death in a White Tie, a Golden Age detective novel by Ngaio Marsh, secretly conceals. For those who prefer to dance until three in the morning.
