Review

"A treat for Daisy's fans as well as those who enjoy Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs." --"Booklist" on "Gone West""Dunn adds another winner to a long string of charming mysteries evocative of the period between the Great Wars." --"Kirkus Reviews" (starred) on "Gone West""A cozy replete with the amenities of English country life." --"Publishers Weekly" on "Gone West""Dunn writes enchantingly of 1920s England: its period accoutrements of cars, cocktails, and the always delightful Daisy." --"Mystery Scene" on "Sheer Folly" --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

The 21st and very latest Daisy Darymple adventure!

From the Inside Flap

When a claimant to the title of Lord Dalrymple comes to an unexpected sticky end, the cry goes up: 'Was it murder?'

The Honourable Daisy Dalrymple is recruited by her cousin Edgar - the current Lord Dalrymple - to help him find the next heir to the viscountcy. The four claimants, along with Daisy, are invited to Fairacres, the family estate, to celebrate Edgar's fiftieth birthday.

And they're a mixed bunch: a hotelier from Scarborough, a diamond merchant from South Africa, a mixed-race boy from Trinidad and a sailor from Jamaica. But then the sailor goes missing . . . and so begins a series of inexplicable and troubling accidents, resulting in the death of one of the would-be heirs. Daisy and her husband, DCI Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, are left wondering who might be behind all of this and, more importantly . . . who's next?

From the Back Cover

When a claimant to the title of Lord Dalrymple comes to an unexpected sticky end, the cry goes up: 'Was it murder?'

The Honourable Daisy Dalrymple is recruited by her cousin Edgar - the current Lord Dalrymple - to help him find the next heir to the viscountcy. With the involvement of the family lawyer, they come up with four claimants who, along with Daisy, are invited to Fairacres, the family estate, to celebrate Edgar's fiftieth birthday.

And they're a mixed bunch. A hotelier from Scarborough, a diamond merchant from South Africa, a mixed-race boy from Trinidad and a sailor from Jamaica. But then the sailor goes missing . . . and so begins a series of inexplicable and troubling accidents, resulting in the death of one of the would-be heirs. Daisy and her husband, DCI Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, are left wondering who might be behind all of this and, more importantly . . . who's next?

'Cunning . . . appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece.' Publishers Weekly

'For fans of Dorothy L. Sayers' novels.' Library Journal
