In this enormously entertaining novel, His Royal Highness Prince Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (affectionately known to friends and family as "Bertie") is in Paris enjoying a respite from his royal duties when he receives news of a shocking murder. It seems the future son-in-law of one of Bertie's dearest friends has been shot at the Moulin Rouge cabaret - yet despite hundreds of witnesses, no one saw a thing. Fancying himself something of an amateur detective, Bertie sets out to solve the mystery, with assistance from none other than internationally renowned actress (and, Bertie hopes, his future paramour) Sarah Bernhardt. Their investigation takes the pair from the heights of Parisian society to the squalor of the city's slums, pitting them against Paris's legendary chief of police and uncovering more than one scandal along the way. With wit and charm as abundant as the portly prince's famous waistline, Bertie and the Crime of Passion is a must-read for discerning mystery fans. (KG)
