For a Roaring 20s mystery set in NYC, there's the Agatha award-nominated , Algonquin Round Table Mysteries. Dorothy Parker is a wisecracking amateur sleuth, trading quips and drinking bootleg gin. If you like Maggie Smith's snarky comments on Downton Abbey, you'll like the witty Mrs. Parker.

Don't forget Persia Walker's DARKNESS AND THE DEVIL BEHIND ME and BLACK ORCHID BLUES. You can hear almost hear the smoky jazz playing and hear the clink of Harlem nightclub glasses you read those books.

A thriller/romanc e, The Return of Captain John Emmett by Elizabeth Speller, captures the trauma and angst of England immediately after World War I. A former officer's inquiry into whether Emmett committed suicide or was murdered soon turns up other questionable deaths of former soldiers. The novel examines issues of guilt, justice and revenge against what was then referred to as the shell shock of those who served in the war.
