Product Description

Review

"The period sense remains vivid, the characterizations are excellent, and the mysteries are, if anything, more perplexing than ever." --"The Oregonian "on "Rattle His Bones""The Honorable Daisy Dalrymple brings her usual style and flair to this installment in Dunn's engagingly entertaining series...Dunn's witty prose shines in this lighthearted whodunit." --"Publishers Weekly "on "Rattle His Bones""Dunn describes 1920s London and the characters in detail and highlights the interplay between Alec and Daisy...a snug read." --"Library Journal "on "Requiem for a Mezzo""A satisfying mystery and accomplished rendering of English social history with a gentle but insistent message that works today." --"The Register-Guard "on "Murder on the Flying Scotsman""A combination of P.G. Wodehouse and "Boy's Own Adventures, "laced with reminders of the all-pervasive class distinctions of the era. A dauntless Daisy and good-natured fun." --"Kirkus Reviews "on "Damsel in Distress""Reading like an Agatha Christie thriller, "Rattle His Bones "is a charming look at life shortly after the first World War." --"Romantic Times"

Book Description

A honeymoon voyage soon sails into decidedly troubled waters... --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Daisy Dal.. Fletcher is back and she is getting used to being married. Having successfully balanced a wedding that suited her status as an honourable and Alec’s as a mere humble policeman with the Metropolitan police they embark on their life together.

Alec’s superiors hope that now Daisy is married she will be less inclined to involve herself in murders and stumble across dead bodies. Oh how little they know Daisy although in the case of this 9th book Scotland Yard were wrong.

After their honeymoon, it seems that Alec’s knowledge and experience are required in America. Especially after successfully helping Caleb Arbuckle’s daughter Gloria in a previous novel. Daisy is not going to be left behind and they join the ship as it makes it’s rather bumpy way across the Atlantic.

As the weather picks up to a storm, it seems that it is affecting the passengers and all of a sudden, there is a man overboard.

Here comes the familiar question in such cases. Did they jump or were they pushed? Or did. Other nature just happen to have a willing hand in their passage out to the treacherous sea.

Alec is with Daisy sharing a moment of newly married bliss when the first man goes overboard. It seems that Alec has the knack of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, just like his wife. Despite being unknown as a policeman on the ship he starts to investigate when seasickness overtakes him and it is left to Daisy to start piecing together the full story.

Then another man goes overboard. It seems this voyage is doomed to be one of murder. Will Alec be able to recover enough to take over from Daisy and ensure that no one else suffers the same fate?

Just finished reading this book this morning, and I have to say that this is not her best. The basic idea for this story is good, but I felt that the actual writing was laboured and needed speeding up in places. I thought the character wanda to be rather irritating to say the least.

Overall, not a bad book, but the absence of characters like Tom Tring and Ernie Piper, made this book seem laboured in places.

I always enjoy Daisy Dalrymple Books, (and indeed, so far all the Carola Dunn Books I have read) and this was no let down. It was quite different, in that it all takes place on board ship, but the general descriptions are very good, and you really do get to like the people who are also on the ship (except the 'baddies' of course) I am so glad that many of the characters from other books stay in the stories. I am having to slow down my reading of these books as I will soon be running out. Excellent.

The main character Daisy is one you can't help but get involved with. The books are easy to read and very entertaining. Ideal for holiday or light reading.

By Elaine Tomasso TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 12 Jan. 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you are new to Carola Dunn's writing this is a lighthearted, frothy tale of murder most foul aboard the Talivera sailing from London to New York in the 20s. Daisy, the heroine of the series, has recently married her fiancé, Chief Inspector Alex Fletcher of Scotland Yard, and is accompanying him on his mission to advise a certain J. Edgar Hoover on rooting out corruption in the Justice Department. The period detail is very good. For series readers like myself this is not one of the better ones. I felt the plot was a bit obvious, not as incisive as some of the other books and Daisy was rather subdued.

Another cracking book by Carola,but I feel there are too many uses of the word dryly and the expression Great Scott! as there seems to be in all of her books.
