The racy novel Lady Mislaid recounts female industrial tycoon Guerda Nielson's 'experiments in love'. The art deco-inspired cover imitates the style of posters used to advertise ocean liners and Hollywood movies in the 1920s and '30s. Howard Kennedy was one of the pen names of the American author Josiah Pitts Woolfolk (1894-1971), who also wrote as Jack Woodford, Gordon Sayre and Sappho Henderson Britt.
