Summary

Summary

In September 1926, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher visits Sybil Sutherby, a school friend now living in Derbyshire as the confidential secretary to a novelist. Suspecting that something is seriously amiss, Sybil has asked Daisy to discretely investigate.

Upon arrival, Daisy finds a household of relatives and would-be suitors living off the hospitality of Humphrey Birtwhistle, who had been supporting them through his thrice-yearly, pseudonymous Westerns. When he took ill, though, Sybil took over writing them while he recovered, only to see the sales increase. Now, she fears that someone in the household is poisoning Birtwhistle to keep him ill and Sybil writing the better-paying versions. But before Daisy can even get decently underway, Humphrey Birtwhistle dies under suspicious circumstances and Daisy now faces a death to untangle, a house full of suspects, and a Scotland Yard detective husband who is less than pleased at this turn of events.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The wife of a Scotland Yard detective is such a clever sleuth that she’s on the scene before her husband…Daisy’s husband’s superior, taking a dim view of her involvement, sends Alec Fletcher to solve the case. Despite (or because of) plenty of promising suspects, Daisy and Alec have their work cut out for them. Dunn adds another winner to a long string of charming mysteries evocative of the period between the Great Wars.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“[In] Dunn’s charming twentieth Daisy Dalrymple mystery…Daisy must tread carefully between her own theories and the official line in a cozy replete with the amenities of English country life.” Publishers Weekly
“Dunn has once again written a charming cozy featuring an intelligent, strong woman.” Booklist
