A Michael Dundas mystery.

“Virginia Rath has devised an intriguing problem in Epitaph for Lydia, a story of the strange trail pursued by Michael Dundas, the dressmaker-sleuth, in an effort to get at the background for Lydia’s murder and eventually, to bring the villain to justice. Miss Rath writes carefully, taking pains to provide a good narrative with sound characterization and ingenious plotting. The results are very gratifying.” (Oakland, California, Tribune, June 21, 1942)
