Event Details

Join us as we investigate sinister goings-on in our nation's capital in the years after WWII. The appearance of the woman in black at a Washington cocktail party sets off a chain of violence and murder. Grace Latham, the shrewd and elegant widow living in Georgetown, works with Colonel Primrose to uncover the truth and clear her good friend Susan of suspicion.

Leslie Ford is the author of over a dozen Latham/Primrose murder mysteries written between 1934 and 1953. Almost all taking place in and around Washington D.C. Her books are recently being reissued in print and digital format.
