Taking place in the jazz era in San Diego against the backdrop of yellow journalism, infamous Hollywood scandals, corruption bans and a lively culture war, Mystery At The Blue Sea Cottage tells the intriguing true crime story of a beautiful dancer, playboy actor and Devonaire doctor.
In January 1923, 20-year-old Fritzie Mann left the house for a secluded cottage by the sea to meet a man whose identity she had not revealed to anyone.
