Murder at Ochre Court (A Gilded Newport Mystery)

Fiction, Published 2018, 304p. by Alyssa Maxwell

In the late 19th century, Newport, RI, is home to some of America’s wealthiest citizens. It’s also the beat of society Reporter Emma Cross, a less well-heeled cousin to the illustrious Vanderbilts, who occasionally moonlights in solving murders. This is a fictional mystery with a good amount of historical detail, depicting the Gilded Era’s contentious transition from gaslight to electricity and mixing in several authentic characters amidst the beautiful setting of Ochre Court.
