Fancy Anders Goes To War: Who Killed Rosie The Riveter? by Max Allan Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This well researched short novel captures the lives of WWII Women at Work while providing a terrific mystery yarn that introduces Fancy Anders, socialite and daughter of a renowned detective, who goes undercover at an airplane factory to help solve the suspicious death of a woman that held the job previously. Fancy is a woman before her time, rebelling against the regimented lives of women in the 1940s. She is adventurous and fearless with modern sensibilities. I really liked the tight, compelling mystery plot, the dialog that contains several 1940s pop culture references and slang, and the cast of characters, especially her new friend Lulu. There are a couple other books in this series that I am looking forward to reading. Loved it.
