It is 1934 and newly wealthy Mona Moon meets an Egyptian heiress with a deadly dilemma in the stunning amateur sleuth mystery, Murder Under A Wolf Moon (A 1930s Mona Moon Historical Cozy Mystery Book 5) by Abigail Keam. Mona Moon attends an extravagant party hosted by a relative of the Vanderbilts and his youthful bride, Elspeth. Elspeth is the daughter of a noted Egyptian archaeologist. As Mona is fascinated with Egyptology, she is looking forward to having a chat with the hostess. During the party, Mona discovers Elspeth weeping in an upstairs bedroom. Concerned, Mona invites her to tea the following afternoon. Over their tea, Elspeth tells Mona that someone is sending her death threats and asks for advice. Before she leaves, Mona gives her the name of a contact who can help her. Mona doesn't hear from her again until Elspeth's maid is found murdered. Was the maid the intended victim? Will Elspeth be the next target?

Murder Under A Wolf Moon by Abigail Keam is a delightful murder mystery that closely mirrors the Australian television series, Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries. Set in Kentucky during the Depression Era, the plot includes notable historical people and illustrates some of the issues our nation faced at that time in history. I immensely enjoyed the book and especially loved Mona's character. She is engaging and has the charming panache of Miss Phryne Fisher. I also appreciated the addendum at the end of the book; it answered the questions I was planning on researching when I finished reading. As a Phryne Fisher fan, I am thrilled with this series, and I highly recommend it to everyone who loves a strong and tenacious feminist sleuth with flair!
