Book - The Girls in the High-Heeled Shoes


Titan Books head back to 1930's noir as they announce The Girls in the High-Heeled Shoes, An Alexander Brass Mystery from Michael Kurland...

Newspaper columnist Alexander Brass is back in another captivating mystery. While New York enjoys the smooth sound of jazz and falls in love with swing, chorus girls and con artists are disappearing off the streets.

Two-Headed Mary, the philanthropic panhandler is missing. So is Billie Trask, who disappeared from the cashier’s office of hit show Lucky Lady with the weekend take. Could either of them have followed a third Broadway babe, chorus girl Lydia Laurent—whose dead body has been found in Central Park? It falls to New York World columnist Alexander Brass and his cheerfully wide-eyed sidekick Morgan DeWitt to dig up the truth.


The second stand alone novel in the Alexander Brass series, The Girls in the High-‐Heeled Shoes follows hot on the heels of the spectacularly fun Too Soon Dead, with Kurland recreating the glamour of 1930s Broadway with celebrated wit and intrigue. Engagingly written and intricately plotted, readers old and new will become instantly immersed in this vintage mystery.  The book is due for release on 23rd February.
