Party Girls Die in Pearls: An Oxford Girl Mystery
By  Plum Sykes
HarperCollins
May 2017

Ursula Flowerbutton arrives at Oxford University only to discover it isn’t all Pimm’s cups, punting, and picnics when she stumbles across the body of one of her classmates, Lady India Brattenbury, on their tutor’s sofa. Desperate to land a spot on the school’s paper, Ursula, with some help from her new BFF American exchange student Nancy Feingold (whose sole purpose in being at Oxford seems to be to try and “catch” a duke or at least an earl), agrees to investigate the murder, which turns out to be a good thing since the university is desperately trying to pass the whole thing off as an “accident.”

Sykes, who already took great glee in skewering America’s version of high society in deliciously acerbic The Debutante Divorcees, now turns her gimlet eye on the British upper-crust and society a la 1980s creating what proves to be a frothy, fun, mix of Agatha Christie, Clueless, and Brideshead Revisited. Party Girls Die in Pearls is marvelous fun for any reader who doesn’t take themselves (or their mysteries) too seriously
