Step into London’s Savoy Hotel in the 1960s with Princess of the Savoy (D&M $19.95), the third volume of a cheeky bestseller series written by Prudence Emery with Ron Base. The hotel may look perfect to outsiders, but the Savoy Press Office tells a different story. Miss Priscilla Tempest, a Canadian who works at the office, navigates challenges from her boss, an American gangster and a Tarzan movie star. Soon, a fascist plot emerges from an English estate, threatening British democracy. Reluctant crime-fighter Priscilla teams up with Fleet Street writer Percy Hoskins to unravel the deadly conspiracy. This installment promises readers an escape into a world of glamour, danger, treachery and a touch of romance. 9781771624053
