Publisher's Summary

A glamorous perfume launch which reeks of nothing but death....

London, Midsummer, 1925.

London is in bloom and the sun is shining. But trouble is lurking around the corner.... Posie Parker has been summoned to Chelsea, to the House of Sinne, the fashionable London perfume house. 

Anouk Sinne, the most brilliant perfumier of her age, has been receiving blackmail demands, and asks Posie to investigate. But is blackmail just the tip of the iceberg? 

A launch party for the House of Sinne’s highly anticipated new fragrance is just about to take place, and Posie finds herself rubbing shoulders with some very famous people, but after the "reveal" of the strangest perfume Posie has ever experienced, things take a chilling turn for the worse....

When Anouk Sinne herself is found murdered in her own garden, Posie must investigate, and quickly. And what she uncovers are secrets everywhere, and motives galore. 

Can Posie stop the killer before they strike again?

A favorite in the series!

I have always liked the Posie Parker series, despite 2 or 3 of the darker books with ABD, especially the one in which he dies. However, I have really enjoyed each of the stories since then with PP and Lovelace. And I especially liked the plot of this 12th book with its promising cliff hanger ending. Can't wait for book 13!
One of the chapters is out of sequence, but I found it did not detract from the plot or my enjoyment of the story.

Cleverly written

This was a cleverly written story. The auther took great care to make the reader part of the environment, to be able to "see" the environment and the people therein through words. The only qritique I can give is the use of OMG from time to time. I'm sure alternative words could have been used that would have not taken away anything from the story.

Captivating series

I’ve listened to the whole series and I’ve rarely seen anything with more intriguing plot twists. There’s also humor, adventure and travel. I’m awaiting the next Posie and Richard adventure in Paris, I assume.

Excellent storytelling!!!!

What a story line! Any chance this series could be made into a miniseries? LB Hathaway ranks up there with Agatha Christy!

Shame the chapters are out of order

Chapter 8 is out of order and this rather wrecks the storywhich I was enjoying up until the moment I realised.

Brilliant

This author just goes from strength to strength and her choice of narrator is simply the best.

I’ve done the entire library now and can’t wait for her next book.

I am sooo disappointed!

I had been waiting patiently for the next in the series and eagerly downloaded it to listen. Unfortunately some of the chapters are recorded out of order and it is really had to follow when one minute you are listening to the start of the book when it jumps a few chapters then jumps back to the missed ones!!! What the hoot and henny Audible??? You have ruined it for me!

Another great Posie Parker Mystery

Brilliant! Great storyline, ingenuous plot set in the perfumery House of Sin. Posie saves the day as Richard has got it all wrong. This murder has a lot to do with the life of Posie's best friend Dolly, Countess. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. This is a wonderful series and a must listen.
