Who Was That Lady?

Death In the Garden (see my review posted 6/01) had a shining moment among reviewers and book-buyers last year when its ambitious new publisher proved that being the wife of the British ambassador to the U.S. (Elizabeth Ironside is the pen name of Lady Catherine Manning) couldn’t disguise a major talent. Now the folks at Felony & Mayhem hope to reinforce that by reprinting another wonderfully readable Ironside story, also set in a bucolic English village, but this time with tragic roots in the Russian Revolution.
