ANOTHER THING TO FALL
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Private Investigator
Murder and suspicious stalking on the set of a TV series sets the stage for this intricately woven mystery. Lippman's bird's-eye view of the overly indulged film actors provides as much entertainment as her compelling mystery.
It's 1861, and Prince Albert is dying at Windsor Castle. Irish barrister Patrick Fitzgerald has been summoned by a fearful and belligerent Queen Victoria, but he's not sure why. Twenty years before, he'd been a young legal clerk representing the man who had allegedly tried to assassinate her.
Not only is the visit mysterious, so is the later attack on the royal carriage, which almost kills him and his young ward, Dr. Georgiana Armistead, the niece of the late Dr. Snow, who had once attended Her Majesty. Fitzgerald isn't even sure he's the target, but he's not taking any chances, and the pair end up on the run from assassins through London, the hills of Cannes
