If you haven’t met Dandy Gilver yet, I encourage you to do so now. McPherson’s appealing character lives in Scotland in the 1920s. Dandy is smart, compassionate and ready to do whatever it takes to solve a crime. You can’t help but enjoy her new adventure as she goes undercover to foil a murder plot.

Mrs. Balfour believes her husband is planning to kill her, and she asks Dandy for help. The most prudent way to get Dandy on the scene is for her to work undercover as a maid, so she leaves the comfort of her own stately home and moves into the basement of the Balfour residence, where she lives with the other servants. She assumes her new role with gusto, but things soon go awry. When a murder does indeed occur, there’s a whole house full of suspects. Dandy puts her investigative skills to work sorting fact from fiction to identify the killer. (MINOTAUR, Aug., 304 pp., $23.99)
