This review is from: The Black Ship: A Daisy Dalrymple Murder Mystery (Kindle Edition)
Like all Daisy Dalrymple books this has to be read in two ways. Firstly, as a continuation of the saga; and here it ticks all the right boxes: old characters appearing in context and nicely drawn new ones adding to the mix. Secondly, as a stand alone mystery; and as such it is fairly ropey. There isn't much mystery. One knows who has done it and even it wasn't obvious there would be no way to work it out from the clues. And in what is always a bad sign, any number of red herrings are simply left dangling rather than being tidied up.
