Improving with every book, 7 Mar 2011
I'm becoming extremely fond of Daisy Dalrymple and her supporting cast of characters. Murder on the Flying Scotsman is easy, entertaining, cosy comfort reading. The author uses a familiar plot device in setting the murder on a train and the nastiest of the family of murder suspects are satisfyingly stereotypical. Although this series borrows unashamedly from the golden era of detective fiction, the author is not afraid to touch on more serious issues from a modern viewpoint including, in this book, the harrowing after effects of trench warfare and racism.
The romance between Daisy and Fletcher progresses satisfactorily and we learn more about his daughter, Belinda, in this book. I look forward to reading the rest of the series
