This classic from 1932 introduces the glamorous, partying, drinking, witty-banter-exchanging couple Nick and Nora Charles, and their schnauzer Asta. While lounging about their townhouse in Manhattan over the holidays, Nick gets drawn into an investigation, and shenanigans ensue.
Another banter-filled 1930’s NY mystery, this time featuring The Norths in Greenwich Village. Like Nick and Nora, Pam and Jerry love cocktails, parties and the vibrant NY scene. When a body is found in the bathtub of their apartment during a party, they find themselves involved in the investigation. While this book - the first in the series - has a bit more police procedure than later installments, it’s a worthy introduction to a delightful pair of investigators.
