Book Description

In the fourth installment of Carola Dunn's cozy mystery series, diligent Daisy Dalrymple sets out for Scotland on an assignment for Town and Country magazine - and finds herself on a journey with squabbling would-be heirs, a stowaway...and a corpse! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

About Daisy Dalrymple
The Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, set in England in 1923, have been compared to Sayers, Allingham, Christie, and PG Wodehouse. Daisy, the daughter of a viscount, decides to earn her own living rather than live with relatives when her brother is killed in WWI. When she first gets involved in a murder, she meets Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard. Sparks fly as Daisy helps/meddles in the case, with her own notions of what constitutes justice. In Murder on the Flying Scotsman, Alec's young daughter gets caught up in the case. Daisy to the rescue! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Short of something to read in the genre I love (cosy whodunnits by female authors, preferably set in the Golden Age of murder mysteries), I tried the first of the Daisy Dalrymple books. Unengaging, I thought, trivial, a bit silly,what do I care who dunnit and who didn't? Still, I ploughed on, since I could get the books for a penny each plus postage on Amazon and at least I could read them at bedtime and be very effectively sent to sleep! Then I came to this one and suddenly, I was involved and started to care about what happened to Daisy and her beau, Alec the gorgeous detective. The stories work well on a fun level. All serial whodunnits are pretty unbelievable, if only because any real heroine who repeatedly encountered dead bodies would have had a nervous breakdown coupled with a major persecution complex. The ability to suspend disbelief is particularly vital for fans of this genre. Still, good books of this kind can still tell interesting and perhaps important truths about human nature and experience, feeding the hunger for understanding of the world we inhabit - well, my hunger for it, anyway. The only thing this series helps me understand is how to construct an entertaining and well-structured romp when you haven't got much depth of content. That's a worthwhile lesson, I suppose, if you like writing.
Daisy is travelling to Scotland and finds that Alec's daughter has run away because she is not allowed to play with her Indian school friend. This introduces the theme of discrimination in 1920s Britain, linked with both class and race. An elderly gent is murdered while travelling to Scotland accompanied by his family, most of whom hope to inherit from him. The chief suspect is the main beneficiary, a young Indian doctor.

A very enjoyable 1920s detective romp as Daisy takes a train north and inevitably encounters, murder and mystery. This is one well connected young lady - wherever she goes she bumps into friends and acquaintances!

The setting is good and gradually the irritating slang of the time is decreasing as the series progresses. Nice artwork on the front cover evocative of the railways posters of the time. The on-going relationship with Inspector Fletcher and his daughter develop satisfyingly.

These are not books for those looking for deep meaning or too much subtlety but they are satisfying in their own way and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who enjoys a nice 1920s setting for their murder and mayhem.

[ASIN:1849013306 Murder on the Flying Scotsman (Daisy Dalrymple Mystery)
The blurb says that Sayers fans will like this book. But it's one thing to try to recreate an earlier era and quite another to write in a contemporary milieu as D.L.S. did - thus avoiding what becomes in this novel anything but seamless research. The writing is fluent but the number of characters makes it difficult to want to go beyond the first chapters. Neither are they differentiated enough to make the reader care much about any of them. The exchanges between Belinda et al are natural, and Daisy emerges as a kind and patient woman (although she doesn't appear to like babies)but I'm not tempted to read anything else by this author. The skull and crossbones on the front of the train, by the way, is a definite turn-off.

Daisy is on her way to write a magazine article about a country house in Scotland. She has treated herself to a first class ticket on the Flying Scotsman. She is surprised and worried when Belinda Fletcher, daughter of her friend, Detective Chief Inspector Alex Fletcher appears in her compartment. Belinda has run away from her grandmother and stowed away on the train without a ticket in the hope that she can reach her father who is working on a case in Northumberland.

One of Daisy's former school friends appears in her compartment having recognised her on the platform and tells her that she and her whole family are on their way to Edinburgh to hear what a relative is intending to do with his large fortune. But before the train has got much further than York, an elderly gentleman who Belinda has befriended is found dead and it looks like murder.

There are some marvellous characters in this story - the ill assorted members of the family - all of whom are suspects in the murder; the local police especially Superintendent Halliday; and Belinda herself. This is the first book in the series in which Belinda has played a large part and she is an interesting character. I particularly liked the Indian doctor who sees more than many people think he does and he features in one of the most amusing scenes in the book towards the end.

The plot is beautifully complex and will keep most readers guessing until very close to the end. This is an enjoyable read and it is the fourth instalment in the Daisy Dalrymple series which started with Death at Wentwater Court (Daisy Dalrymple)

On the back of the book it says that it's "for fan's of Dorothy L. Sayers novels" and while I have not read Sayers, I have watched the dramatizations of her novels on TV and I agree, this is perfect for fans of classic whodunits novels. This is a real beauty. Daisy Dalrymple, Honorable and journalist, travels on a train to Scotland in a first class carriage. There she is reacquainted with a school mate that is now married. Said old friend and her entire extended family is on their way to Scotland to try to persuade her grandfather to alter his will. In the same carriage travels the friend's aged great-uncle who everybody hate and they try to persuade him to change his will as well. The train only stops one time on the way between London and Edinburgh so no suspects coming aboard or getting off during the trip. And of course one person gets killed. Daisy is in the middle of everything again. When the Detective from Scotland Yard, Alec Fletcher, arrives he is more than upset at her once again meddling in one of his cases but of course since they both are very fond of each other, he is not upset for very long and actually find her useful again. Very enjoyable read.
