On a later trip, as closing time nears, Daisy hears two voices followed by a tremendous crash and rushes into the next hall to discover Dr. Pettigrew dead—murdered amidst a pile of dinosaur bones.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The period sense remains vivid, the characterizations are excellent, and the mysteries are, if anything, more perplexing than ever.” Oregonian
“Reading like an Agatha Christie thriller, Rattle His Bones is a charming look at life shortly after the first world war. Readers will delight not only in the mystery but in Daisy’s relationship with Belinda as well.” RT Book Reviews
“The Honourable Daisy Dalrymple brings her usual style and flair to this eighth installment, set in 1920s London, in Dunn’s engagingly entertaining series…Dunn’s witty prose shines in this lighthearted whodunit.” Publishers Weekly
