Bedford Green confronts lions, the Prince of Wales, and an ugly murder in Kenya It's a beautiful day in Greenwich Village, and for once, Bedford Green is selling paintings. Business is booming, and this gossip-columnist-turned-art-dealer owes it all to his invaluable assistant, Sloane--who goes and spoils the fun by announcing that she's leaving on safari. Sloane is a Midwestern girl and has never laid eyes on any animal more exotic than a housecat, but she can't resist her uncle Dixon's invitation to visit Kenya to hobnob with everyone from the department-store king of Chicago to the Prince of Wales. Green thinks it sounds dreadfully dangerous--which means he has no choice but to go with her. The safari is cut short, however, when Sloane's aunt is found dead in the arms of a married man and Dixon is arrested for murder. Freeing him will take every ounce of Green's charm--and may end with this out-of-place gadfly in chains. A Sinful Safari is the 3rd book in the Bedford Green Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order

A Jazz Age rake investigates an utterly divine art-world mystery Everyone who's anyone knows Bedford Green. Once a merciless gossip columnist, he has given up the life of sleaze and secrets and decamped for the Village to open a gritty little art gallery showcasing the most shocking European artists imaginable. The gallery is a money pit, and Green is in debt to some of the roughest loan sharks south of 14th Street, but that doesn't stop him from looking fabulous or having a good time. He's the happiest in New York society--at least until his assistant starts to cry. Sloane is a modern woman, a flapper with a razor-sharp bob and a bulletproof heart, but she's convinced that her friend Polly Swanscott is in danger. From the speakeasies of the Village to the finest cafes in Paris, Green will do his best to save Polly--and he'll do it with a cocktail in hand
