Edna Ferber, detective

FerberEd Ifkovic’s mystery series stars the real-life best-selling author Edna Ferber as an amateur detective. Her books were made into Broadway musicals (Show Boat) and movies (Giant), so Edna is always working in an exciting place and with interesting historic personalities including James Dean, Frank Sinatra, George F. Kaufman.  The series chronology is a bit unusual:  Ifkovic apparently researches Edna’s life at a particular time and place, then writes the book.  Each book jumps to another place and time.  Fortunately he firmly dates them. The first book he wrote, Lone Star (Poisoned Pen, 2009) was set in 1955.  Recently he has been filling in back stories set in 1904 and 1914. Edna lived into her seventies, so Iflovic still has lots of fodder to work with. Cafe Europa (Poisoned Pen, 2015), the newest book in the series, is set in 1914 and follows Edna to Budapest in the company of British suffragette, Winifred Moss. A wealthy young American woman about to be forced into marriage with a European aristocrat, is murdered.
