WOULDN’T IT BE DEADLY
2014 AGATHA AWARD Finalist for BEST HISTORICAL!
Following her dazzling appearance at an Embassy Ball—where Eliza Doolittle won Professor Higgins’s bet that he could pass off a Cockney flower girl as a duchess—Eliza becomes an assistant to his chief rival Emil Nepommuck.
After Nepommuck publicly takes credit for transforming Eliza into a lady, an enraged Higgins publicly exposes Nepommuck as a fraud. When Nepommuck is found with a dagger in his back, Henry Higgins finds himself Scotland Yard’s prime suspect in the murder.
