Sugarland: A Jazz Age Mystery by Martha Conway is an atmospheric mystery set in Chicago in 1921. Think speakeasies, jazz musicians, emerging black culture, racism and gangsters and you’ll get the flavour of Sugarland.

This is a great read, well written, full of fascinating detail about early 20’s Chicago, black/white tensions and the Jazz scene. The plot twists nicely and the detail is woven in without being overly intrusive. I hope it is the first of a series by Conway

You should read this 4.5/5
