“A Front Page Affair” by Radha Vatsal is the first book in Kitty Weeks Mystery novel series. Set in New York in the months before the United States joined in World War I, this mystery has all the drama of a spy novel, murder mystery and romance of the era. Capability Weeks is a fledgling reporter for the New York Sentinel newspaper, for the Ladies’ Page section of the paper. During the course of an interview with a society matron at a party, Kitty involves herself in the investigation of a murder that takes place during the party. Everywhere she turns, sinister happenings occur. This novel was very interesting to me because the author included prominent figures of the era in the story and also events that occurred during this time. I look forward to more Kitty Weeks mysteries and more novels from Ms. Vatsal.
I received a Print copy of this book from SourceBooks Publishers in return for my honest review.
