Consequently this story of murder and intrigue in the glamorous world of style and silhouette is told with a competence and sparkle which make it truly outstanding. A committee meeting of the Tomorrow Club, fashion arbiters supreme, was interrupted by the sudden collapse of Nancy Pierce, blonde, ornate, too showy for really good style, and a public menace to every male creature between eighteen and eighty. The other members felt that it was quite typical of Nancy to die publicly and conspicuously, consequently the first impression of suicide was given credence. Too many factors upset that convenient theory, and the district attorneys office sent young Lyle Curtis up to take charge. With the aid of Susan Yates, a charming and intelligent young person who gave him the clues to fit into a confusing pattern, Curtis followed through to another meeting of a fashion group, and found that death could end a case as well as begin one. Amusing, well plotted, and exceedingly well characterized, Murder in Style is the first of what promises to be a popular group of stories featuring Lyle Curtis and Susan Yates.
