Publisher's Summary

"Tony, something’s wrong inside the Met. It’s upside down. Like looking at the skyline and seeing Elizabeth Tower on her head. You sense it, don’t you?"

For Lord Anthony Hetheridge, this wet April should be full of promise. His wife, Kate, is on bedrest for her final month of pregnancy, and his friend DI Deepal "Paul" Bhar's firstborn, a darling baby girl, has already arrived. Wellegrave House is restored, and the Hetheridges are back where they belong, in the heart of Mayfair. But inside Scotland Yard, the institution Tony served for so many years, something is very wrong.

When the body of Tony's former protege, DC Amelia Gulls, is found murdered in her flat, suspicion immediately falls on her boyfriend, DC Sean Kincaid. And when Paul calls in Tony to assist with the investigation, they turn up more questions than answers. Before her death, Gulls was working on three cold cases: a kept woman hurled out the window of her fourth-floor love nest, a uni student who drowned in the Thames, and a retired detective's drug-addicted son found dead under a tree. As Tony probes these seemingly unsolvable cases, he draws closer to a shocking truth - and a dangerous reckoning.

Untrue Blue is the seventh book in the ongoing Lord and Lady Hetheridge Mystery Series. The series' first omnibus, Deadly Trio, appeared on both the New York Times and USA Today best-seller lists, and all the books have made appearances, often at number one, on Kindle best-seller lists. The author, Emma Jameson, would like to take this opportunity to once again to thank for the lovely messages of support. The most common question she's asked is, "Will you keep writing Lord and Lady Hetheridge books?" The answer is a resounding yes.

Exceptional!

procedural, law-enforcement, surprises, support-system, suspense, false-information, family, family-dynamics, private-investigators, pregnancy, British-detective, class-consciousness, friendship, mental-health-issues, London, murder, murder-investigation, consultant, situational-humor, verbal-humor, wealthy*****

The core characters may not be as understandable to make this an easy stand alone, but the incredibly complex/convoluted mysteries of various seemingly unconnected unsolved murders make this book beyond exceptional. The core characters are members of the "Toff Squad" and their forcibly retired "Gov" turned police consultant. There are a lot of personal/family goings on with them that runs in the background.
The murders they are called on to investigate, while seemingly unrelated, are all directly or indirectly tied to Scotland Yard. Including a young recent member of their team. So there they are, juggling an assortment of high profile murders while facing all the noise and bluster of those who allege corruption in the department including cover ups and worse.
I suspect that if one is new to Lord and Lady Hetheridge Mysteries, this one will encourage a binge through the earlier books. This one is not as hysterically funny as the others, but some parts still made me spew my tea.
Not sure what else to say without giving the game away, but I did love it and hope for more!
I really appreciate the talents of voice actor Matthew Lloyd Davies to help me with easy differentiation of so many characters in the audio, and he always underplays the scenes!

Still love

I still love this series. The murder was complex and surprising. I still enjoy the characters, but I am curious where the next book goes given all that happened. I was disappointed that the baby situation was handled so abruptly. I wanted more something and less baby in the umbrella stand a la Carol Burnett. Nipper is just kind of suddenly there. I will definitely continue on with it.
