The third in the Daisy Dalrymple mystery series.
Born and raised in England, Carola Dunn now lives in Eugene, Oregon, USA.
Dunn's formula is strikingly similar to Fuller's. The Honorable Daisy Dalrymple and Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher (Death at Wentwater Court, St. Martin's, 1994) witness the on-stage poisoning of Daisy's next-door neighbor, a soloist. Alec heads the investigation but depends on foil Daisy for additional information. Most of the suspects bend her ear about the deceased, an ambitious, manipulative woman. Dunn describes 1920s London and the characters in detail and highlights the interplay between Daisy and Alec. A simple, snug read.
