The ignorant classes are the dangerous classes.
—Henry Ward Beecher
You have but to turn the pages of N. S. Patrick’s latest novel, Fool’s Parsley, to step back in time to the turn of the century, to the time of Gatsby, flappers and prohibition. There, the flavor of the era engulfs you—ragtime, jazz, art deco, Stutz Bearcat, bootleg liquor. Woven into this setting is a tale of murder and mayhem.
Enter Archer Reed and Ione Wallace, recognized for their uncanny ability to solve crimes. As members of the upper echelons of society, they offer the readers an insight into this tight-knit group—the best and the worst. This is one mystery you will not want to put down.
