The Darings of the Red Rose
Purchase Title ›
The lights are dimmed and a silent figure in a diaphanous white gown sneaks toward the safe where the famous diamond, The Seven Stars, is kept. Softly the safe door opens, the diamond is removed, and the figure slips softly away, leaving only a red rosebud behind . . .’ This series of eight linked episodes is a prime example of the sort of ‘pulp fiction’ that was Margery Allingham’s stock-in-trade before Mystery Mile consolidated her success with the critics. The story of Betty Connolly’s revenge on the heartless financiers who ruined her family is fast-moving, exciting and romantic.
