Death Was in the Blood
In the third Kitty Pangborn novel, Kitty finds herself challenged by what-might-have-beens. When Dex is charged with finding out who’s threatening a wealthy industrialist’s daughter, Kitty discovers herself back in the social class she was raised to, only now she&rsqio;s expected to come in the service entrance. It doesn’t help that the young woman they’ve been hired to look out for doesn’t want Dex and Kitty’s protection: she’s headstrong, willful, and — in many ways — not unlike Kitty herself.
Set against the backdrop of preparation for the 1932 Olympic games, Death Was in the Blood takes the reader smack-dab into the lost history of the City of Angels, and the point where Kitty discovers what it means to give it up and let it go.
