New Year's Eve, 1929. Millie is running the show at the Cloak & Dagger, a swinging speakeasy in the French Quarter, while her aunt is out of town. The new year is just around the corner, and all of New Orleans is out to celebrate, but even wealthy partiers' diamond earrings can't outshine the real star of the night: the boy in the red dress. Marion is the club's star performer and his fans are legion--if mostly underground.When a young socialite wielding a photograph of Marion starts asking questions, Millie wonders if she's just another fan. But then her body is found crumpled in the courtyard, dead from an apparent fall off the club's balcony, and all signs point to Marion as the murderer. Millie knows he's innocent, but local detectives aren't so easily convinced. As she chases clues that lead to cemeteries and dead ends, Millie's attention is divided between the wry and beautiful Olive, a waitress at the Cloak & Dagger, and Bennie, the charming bootlegger who's offered to help her solve the case. The clock is ticking for the fugitive Marion, but the truth of who the killer is might be closer than Millie thinks.… (mais)

audiosync free title 2023 (9 hrs 55min) teen-friendly murder myster with queer protagonists set in 1930 New Orleans

straightforward amateur detective mystery with likeable queer cast (note: some of them may have been trans before preferred pronouns, so they all retain their assigned genders, though Marion has claimed a new name at least). Swear words are replaced with G-versions ("witch" instead of "b___") and there is mild gun/knife violence.

Narrator Sophie Amoss does an awesome job bringing this story to life with appropriate voice differentiation for the queer and trans characters (mascs and femmes) as well as the grouchy detective and other characters. ( )

Good story and narration dealing with sexual identities without getting overwhelmed with graphic details.

FROM SYNC 2023: Narrator Sophie Amoss gives voice to a headstrong amateur sleuth in this intriguing historical whodunit. On New Year’s Eve, 1929, a debutante is found murdered outside of the Cloak & Dagger, a speakeasy and LGBTQIA haven in New Orleans. The main suspect is Marion, the club’s headlining drag performer. But Millie, the club owner’s niece and Marion’s best friend, is determined to prove his innocence by finding the real culprit. Amoss gives her husky, understated narration a wry edge, effectively communicating Millie’s blend of teenage naïveté and worldly confidence. Some characters are portrayed with distinctive voices (though there are curiously few Southern accents), but none are obtrusive. These qualities allow listeners to remain grounded in Millie’s first-person perspective. An engaging and inclusive audio mystery. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020] ( )

The Boy in the Red Dress by Kristin Lambert

Annotation: Bi-teen Millie was managing a speakeasy on New Year’s Eve 1929 when a socialite is found murdered on the premises, and the club’s drag performer Marion is the prime suspect in the murder. Millie vows to prove her best friend innocent as more mysteries pop up.

Book Talk: Millie is a rough around-the-edges high schooler in 1929 New Orlean, but she’s also a coat-check girl at her aunt’s speakeasy. At the Cloak & Dagger, Millie doesn't have to hide her bisexuality and her preference for wearing men’s clothes. He’s her best friend is Marion, and he’s the star performer at the club. When a nosy rich girl winds ups murdered at the club and all clues point towards Marion, Millie launches into her own investigation to clear his name. She knows that the police have no problem pinning the crime on the gay boy who sings in a dress. The more she digs, the more dead ends she finds, and the closer Marion gets to being arrested. However, the killer may be someone Millie knows after all.
