Following her successful appearance at an Embassy Ball--where Eliza Doolittle won Professor Henry Higgins' bet that he could pass off a Cockney flower girl as a duchess--Eliza becomes an assistant to his chief rival Emil Nepommuck. After Nepommuck publicly takes credit for transforming Eliza into a lady, an enraged Higgins submits proof to a London newspaper that Nepommuck is a fraud. When Nepommuck is found with a dagger in his back, Henry Higgins becomes Scotland Yard's prime suspect. However, Eliza learns that most of Nepommuck's pupils had a reason to murder their blackmailing teacher. As another suspect turn up dead and evidence goes missing, Eliza and Higgins realize the only way to clear the Professor's name is to discover which of Nepommuck's many enemies is the real killer. When all the suspects attend a performance of" Hamlet" at Drury Lane, Eliza and Higgins don their theatre best and race to upstage a murderer.
Eliza and Higgins make a surprising and charming pair of detectives in D.E. Ireland's delightfully hilarious series debut, which transports readers to Edwardian London, from the aristocratic environs of Mayfair to the dangerous back alleys of the East End. "Wouldn't It Be Deadly" boasts a cunning mystery, no shortage of interesting suspects, and some of the most memorable characters of English literature.
