Part of the Jazz Age Mystery series, set in the roaring twenties.

From the back:
"A time when the music was bolder and the personalities brighter. From speakeasies to the bohemian scene, follow Bedford Green, a man-about-town who rubs elbows with high and low society, dabbles in art dealing, and mingles with crime ...

Bedford Green has received and invitation to join the Vanderbilt's estate in Newport - but the artful art dealer sense an ulterior motive. In truth, his hostess wants the latest gossip on an alleged member of the Hungarian nobility, the Countess Zala. But when Green and his assistant Sloane arrive, no further mention is made of the countess. All questions are politely sidestepped - even when some midnight skinny-dipping reveals a dead body that matches the countess's description. Could it be, Bedford wonders, that the rich and famous won't let a little murder get in the way of their good fun?"
