Kurzbeschreibung

3. Oktober 2007 Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries (Buch 16)
In early 1925, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, recent mother of twins, resumes her journalistic career by agreeing to write a piece about the Tower of London - The Bloody Tower - for an American magazine. Invited to observe the centuries old ritual Ceremony of the Keys, she's spending the night (her first time away from her babies) since the complex is locked and guarded, and the high walls are surrounded by a disused moat. Having been given a tour of the Crown Jewels, interviewed and observed the Yeoman Warders, and met the Ravenmaster, Daisy has more than enough material for her article and decides to leave as early as possible the next morning to return to her family. But when walking down the stairs, she almost trips over the dead body of one of the Yeoman Warders. That there's something seriously amiss cannot be denied, due to the pike sticking out of his back. With her husband, Scotland Yard DCI Alec Fletcher assigned to resolve the case, Daisy finds herself in the middle of the investigation.

Synopsis

In early 1925, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, recent mother of twins, resumes her journalistic career by agreeing to write a piece about the Tower of London - The Bloody Tower - for an American magazine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Erfreuliches Treffen im Blutigen Turm! 30. März 2009
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Ein weiterer gelungener Band der Serie, was sich die Autorin immer wieder ausdenkt! Hier trifft Daisy auf die aktuellen Bewohner des Towers, die verschiedenen Militäreinheiten, und wird mit der Geschichte konfrontiert. Liebenswerte Helden, detaillierte Beschreibungen, eine komplexe, wenn auch nicht überkomplizierte Handlung, machen dieses Buch zu einem echten Cosy read. Ich habe es in einem Zug durchgelesen und freue mich schon sehr auf den nächsten Band.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good - but not as good as usual 9. September 2007
Von Laura Gifford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
My usual rating for a Daisy Dalrymple mystery is a full five stars. I gave this one four not because this was not a bad book, but it lacked the usual fun romp feel of most of the other books. So - Daisy fans enjoy your fist introduction to Daisy, new mom, but first timers - try Murder on the Flying Scotsman first.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another enjoyable installment 13. September 2007
Von Coppertop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is another installment in Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series. As usual, we are treated to a new location in Britian and new murder to be investigated by Daisy's husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard. Daisy has been very pregnant in the last book and now she has twins. The twins play a very minor role, though. This is Daisy's first assignment since the birth and take her to the Tower of London. She discovered a murder one morning - a case of mistaken identity it turns out. Daisy isn't quite as involved as normal, as she isn't living at the Tower, but she still provides a lot of fodder for Alec to work with. This is another exciting and interesting mystery - Daisy and Alec never fail to amuse me!

5.0 von 5 Sternen a very enjoyable and absorbing read 16. Oktober 2007
Von tregatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There seems to be a sudden proliferation of mystery novels set in Post WWI England -- it almost seems as if it is the "in" thing to do right now. And while some of the more recent offerings have proved to be rather well written pieces, I have to admit that for me, my favourtie has to be Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series.

In this latest installment, "The Bloody Tower," Daisy has been asked by her American editor to write a series of articles on the Tower of England. Having just recently given birth to twins, this assignment fits in nicely with Daisy's plans to remain close to home while working. Another bonus is the realisation that a friend of her mother-in-laws, the eccentric Mrs. Tebbit and her daughter Myrtle, are currently living with the Resident Governor, Major General Carradine and his two daughters. Now, if only her luck would hold, she won't find herself embroiled in yet a murder investigation! Unfortunately for Daisy, her luck doesn't hold: invited to spend the night at the Resident Governor's so that she can observe the Ceremony of the Keys, Daisy almost trips over the body of Chief Yeoman Warder Crabtree as she leaves the Tower the following morning. That Crabtree has been murdered is evident; but who would want to murder the nice, harmless Mr. Crabtree? In spite of her good intentions, Daisy soon finds herself giving her husband, Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher, some unsolicited assistance on the case once again...

"The Bloody Tower" was a quick and easy read from the very first page. This was due entirely to the author's energetic and effervescent prose style, and the fact that she managed to maintain and light touch in spite of the dark overtones the storyline sometimes decreed. I particularly enjoyed all the colourful and atmospheric descriptions of the Tower of London shrouded in fog. It was only two paragraphs long, but it set the tone and was completely memorable. I also enjoyed the all the wonderful red herring suspects that the author had thoughtfully provided for me as well as interesting plot twists. Best of all though, was observing how Daisy and Alec interacted with each other, assisting and respecting each other's strengths, and so working together to catch another killer. All in all a very enjoyable and absorbing read.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Descriptions a bit lacking 2. März 2014
Von Caiti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is not a bad book but not as good as Dunn's previous books. I found the description of the buildings quite poor. Also, sometimes there would be something missing between a comment made and a response which made it difficult to fully comprehend an important point.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Just Okay 1. Februar 2013
Von Nancy G. Cooper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I choose this because it was an English Historic Mystery. I enjoyed it, but it was not so much about the characaters as it was about the tower building and it dragged a bit for me. I like the author but this book was just ok.
