Lost Among the Angels

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
When Boston Brahmin Mercy Allcutt gets a job with Ernest Templeton, P.I., she's ecstatic. Ernie, jaded ex-cop, is incredulous.

Throw in a stray child, blackmail, murder, a poodle, a stalker, Mercy's imagination and Ernie's protective streak. Add a speakeasy, Chinatown, and some vicious criminals, they're in for a drama that will put the flickers to shame--if they survive to tell the story. More

About Alice Duncan

Award-winning author Alice Duncan lives with a herd of wild dachshunds (enriched from time to time with fosterees from New Mexico Dachshund Rescue) in Roswell, New Mexico. She’s not a UFO enthusiast; she’s in Roswell because her mother’s family settled there fifty years before the aliens crashed. Since her two daughters live in California, where Alice was born, she’d like to return there, but can’t afford to. Alice would love to hear from you at alice@aliceduncan.net.

Review by: donna crow on June 29, 2011 :
If you haven't yet met Mercy Allcutt, Alice Duncan's heroine of the Angel Flight series, listen to me, you really, really DO want to meet Mercy. The spunky, but proper, daughter of blue-blood Bostonians turned loose in the speakeasies, opium dens and (gasp) barber shops of Roaring 20's Los Angeles is a true delight. I love the way Alice has turned the stereotypical dumb blonde sidekick/girlfriend of a hard-bitten detective on its head in creating Mercy. I'm wondering whether or not Alice has created a new subgenre in this hard-bitten cozy.

Oh, yes, and all you animal lovers--just wait till you meet Rosie, the miniature black poodle. And then there's streetwise, 12-year-old Barbara Ann, And did I mention Ernie Templeton AKA Sam Spade? All great characters.
