After two years at home in Australia, Katherine King Button has had enough. Her rich parents have ordered her to get married, but after serving as a nurse during the Great War, she has vowed never to take orders again. She flees her parents and the prison of their expectations for the place of friendship and freedom: Paris.
Sparkling, witty and engaging crime fiction – one for fans of Fryne Fisher and Julian Fellows!
