Unflappable flapper and Town & Country scribe Daisy Dalrymple searches for a killer whose vicious pen matches a murderous heart in this delightful installment of Dunn's cozy mystery series. In the 1920s, in post–World War I England, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple, newly married to Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher, is asked by her brother-in-law to discreetly investigate a series of poisoned pen letters that many of the local villagers have been receiving. When the pompous and unbearable brother of the local vicar is killed by a very large rock, dropped on his head from a great height, it seems clear to all that this campaign of gossip has escalated to murder. With the help of her husband, who'd rather she not get involved, Daisy tries to uncover who wrote the letters and who that person has driven to murder before the killer strikes again.

Story

Clever without complications.

For anyone who enjoys a simple mystery with complexities kept at a minimum, this is one of Carola Dunn’s best easy read/listen books. Mia Chlaromonte gives a consistent and underplayed reading of the story which involves Daisy Dairymple, a journalist working in the era of the 1930’s, being asked to investigate the unusual and unnerving poison pen letter circulating through her sister’s village. With the help of her fiancee, Alec, a Scotland Yard Inspector, they tackle the quest of finding the writer with just the right amount of tension and expository description. – Odin Roark
