Carnaby Street crime

Send a Fax to the Kasbah

Title: Send a Fax to the Kasbah
By: Dorothy Dunnett

Read this before all of our Johnson Johnson mysteries disappear from our shelves -- and then hunt down the others. Better known for her bestselling historical fiction, Dunnett relaxed between sagas by producing seven witty mysteries that a perceptive reader characterized as "pure Carnaby Street." (Think Britain, Beatles, miniskirts...) Send a fax to the Kasbah (UK title: Moroccan traffic) is the final entry in the series, but a delicious entrée. See this Wikipedia article for a chronological list of the series, including both UK and US titles.
