Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood - Phryne Fisher series.
The London season is in full fling at the end of the 1920s, but the Honourable Phryne Fisher is rapidly tiring of the tedium of arranging flowers, making polite conversations with retired colonels, and dancing with weak-chinned men. Instead, Phryne decides it might be rather amusing to try her hand at being a lady detective in Melbourne, Australia. Almost immediately from the time she books into the Windsor Hotel, Phryne is embroiled in mystery: poisoned wives, cocaine smuggling rings, corrupt cops, and communism - not to mention erotic encounters with the beautiful Russian dancer, Sasha de Lisse - until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.

When the FBI hits a dead end, they are impressed enough by Riley's keen insight into the killer's mind to allow her to help. Yet the killer's mind is a dark, twisted place, one too diabolical to make sense of, and one that threatens to bring Riley's fragile psyche crashing down. In this deadly game of cat and mouse, can Riley survive unscarred?
