The Boy in the Red Dress
Genre: Historical Mystery
Release date: May 12, 2020
When her drag queen best friend is accused of murdering a young socialite, a Jazz Age misfit must use her sharp wits and sharper tongue to search for the real killer through the seedy speakeasies and glittering debutante balls of 1930 New Orleans. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more secrets she uncovers.
Seventeen-year-old Millie Coleman wears her hair short, her trousers cuffed, and her chin squared against the world. She works as a jill-of-all-trades in her aunt’s drag club, where her best friend Marion is the star performer. But when a socialite from Marion’s past appears at the club looking for him — and then turns up dead — the police are quick to point the finger at Marion.
Millie and Marion team up with a charming bootlegger and a sharp-eyed waitress to track down all the socialite’s secrets in hopes that one will lead them to her killer. But the killer has more to hide than murder and is willing to kill again to protect their identity. Millie must solve the mystery before it’s too late — for her, or someone she loves.
