Pressestimmen

"The period sense remains vivid, the characterizations are excellent, and the mysteries are, if anything, more perplexing than ever." --"The Oregonian "on "Rattle His Bones""The Honorable Daisy Dalrymple brings her usual style and flair to this installment in Dunn's engagingly entertaining series...Dunn's witty prose shines in this lighthearted whodunit." --"Publishers Weekly "on "Rattle His Bones""Dunn describes 1920s London and the characters in detail and highlights the interplay between Alec and Daisy...a snug read." --"Library Journal "on "Requiem for a Mezzo""A satisfying mystery and accomplished rendering of English social history with a gentle but insistent message that works today." --"The Register-Guard "on "Murder on the Flying Scotsman""A combination of P.G. Wodehouse and "Boy's Own Adventures, "laced with reminders of the all-pervasive class distinctions of the era. A dauntless Daisy and good-natured fun." --"Kirkus Reviews "on "Damsel in Distress""Reading like an Agatha Christie thriller, "Rattle His Bones "is a charming look at life shortly after the first World War." --"Romantic Times"

Auch wenn man schon ziemlich früh die Zusammenhänge erkennen kann, tut das dem Genuss keinen Abbruch. Wieder eine charmante Geschichte der liebenswerten Helden, mit vielen Wendungen und farbigen Charakteren. Einige historische und wissenschaftliche Referenzen geben noch zusätzliche Einblicke. Die Vorhersehbarkeit stört auf keinen Fall.

As a mystery, this book isn't very challenging. It's quite easy to figure out the solution. But the whole story is so charming, the setting is unusual and yet convincing and the protagonists are so likeable that the mystery actually isn't that important anymore.

Carola Dunn has created the setting that works best for her Daisy Dalrymple stories - a fixed location and a limited number of suspects. This time it's not a house party but a ship, and it's Daisy's and Alec's honeymoon, and everything that can happen on a ship duly happens. There is sea-sickness, people falling overboard and even a rescue of ship-wrecked emigrants.

Among the passengers there are nice and nasty people, there are some love stories going on and the whole of it makes a very entertaining book. If you liked the first Daisy Dalrymple stories you'll definitely like this one, too.

a wonderfully engaging and cozy read 2. April 2001
Von tregatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"To Davy Jones Below" is the eighth book in the highly enjoyable Daisy Dalrymple mystery series, and it is as entertaining and as engaging as the previous novels in the series. This time around, Daisy's latest adventure takes place abroad the luxury ship, the S.S. Talavera, during her honeymoon.
Daisy and her policeman fiance, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, have barely tied the knot, when Alec is informed that he will be sailing to America as soon as their brief honeymmon is over, in order to advise the Americans on how to organise and clean up their Invesgation Bureau of the Justice Department. Of course Alec will have to take Daisy with him -- it is the very prospect of six weeks without Daisy getting herself involved with any police investigations, that sells the Assisstant Commissionor on the idea of doing without him for a while! It has even been arranged for Daisy to do a series of articles on her trip to America. It all seems a little too good to be true -- a trip to America abroad the S.S. Talavera, accompanied by their good friends Philip and Gloria Petrie, and Gloria's millionaire father, Caleb P. Arbuckle! And that's what it proves to be. The first sign that things will not be smooth sailing is the news that Arbuckle's friend, Jethro Gotobed (another millionaire), has married his chorus-girl girlfriend. Arbuckle had hoped to wean Gotobed of the glorious Wanda's charms by inviting him to America. However Gotobed confounds Arbuckle's good intentions by rushing Wanda off her feet and marrying her. Everyone is appalled with this marriage, and even Daisy's rather proletariat leanings are challenged by Wanda's vulgarity.
Daisy and Alec however are firmly resolved to enjoy their extended honeymoon, but their plans suffer a setback as well when a passenger falls overboard, and another passenger, the giddy Lady Brenda, swears that she saw someone push the unfortunate Mr. Denton, into the sea. Upon learning that Alec is a police officer, the harassed ship captain, inveigles him to look into the matter. However Alec is by now suffering from a bout of sea sickness. This leaves Daisy to act as his deputy, and to discreetly interrogate the witnesses. The investigation seems to be going nowhere when another passenger (Mr. Pertwee) falls overboard. This time however Mr. Gotobed cries foul by claiming that Pertwee was shot before he fell overboard. Is there a maniac aboard, bent on throwing unsuspecting passengers into the sea? Or are the two 'accidents' connected? And if so how? Daisy and Alec are determined to get to the bottom of things before another passenger falls into the sea.
This entire series makes for highly enjoyable and entertaining light reading. The violence is minimal in the sense that Dunn does not go in for graphic and horrific detail, and her prose style is crisp and witty, ably capturing the spirit of the 1920s. Indeed there was quite a P. G. Woodehouse air about this particular mystery! And Carola Dunn has created a wonderfully engaging and charming investigative heroine in Daisy: it is Daisy's zest and keeness to help others, a tendency that frequently lands her in the middle of Alec's cases, that is the central force of this series and what makes it so compelling and engaging. "To Davy Jones Below" is a wonderfully cozy read, and great fun.

A comfy cozy! 10. Mai 2007
Von Liz at reviewedbyliz.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Davey Jones Below is a Daisy Dalrymple mystery set in 1923. Daisy and her new husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher, have had their honeymoon Shanghaied. An American millionaire has arranged to use the consulting services of Fletcher in Washington D.C. for several weeks and the newlyweds are now honeymooning on the transatlantic cruise, along with the American's family and friends.

But the crossing is marred by seasickness and mishaps - people keep falling off the ship. Or, as one witness described it, being pushed. With DCI Fletcher below decks in agony, Daisy takes over the investigation requested by the captain. Daisy needs to discover which of their sailing companions has a hidden agenda without causing a panic amongst the passengers.

This the eighth book in the Daisy Dalrymple series, but it is the first book that I have read by Dunn and I enjoyed the book. The characters are appealing, the shipboard setting alternates between being romantic and frightening, and the historical details add interest to the story. And if I seem to be damming this book with faint praise, that isn't my intention. This book is of the type that is the staple of the cozy reader's diet. It is interesting without being heavy, a fast read, and a welcome respite from some of the more ponderous books I have been reading lately.

Favorite character? Fletcher, who doesn't patronize his detecting wife too much. Did I guess it? Yes. Will I read another? Yes. How nice to find a new author that I enjoy with a long series - I now have lots of Daisy Dalrymple's adventures to look forward to.

Delightful 17. September 2007
Von S. A. W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Daisy and her new husband DCI Alec Fletcher set sail for America. But what should be a romantic cruise quickly turns into the voyage of discomfort and death as the rough seas leave stomachs queasy and passengers begin to tumble overboard.

Dunn has chosen a wonderful setting for her tale (a 1923 trans-Atlantic crossing) and she makes the most of it. The story is nicely paced and populated with colorful characters.

To say that this book (and the entire series for that matter) is delightful may sound trite, but it is an apt description for such wonderful escapist reading. Spending a few hours with Daisy and Alec is pure pleasure.

Murder At Sea 16. November 2012
Von L. M Young - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Daisy Dalrymple and her beau DI Alec Fletcher have finally been married (to the dismay of her mother and of his). With Alec's schoolgirl daughter in the care of her grandmother, the happy couple are about to go a-honeymooning when they find they have been booked on the ocean liner Talavera at the instigation of their American friend Caleb Arbuckle, who is traveling along with his daughter Gloria, now married to Daisy's friend Phil, as well as Arbuckle's partner and his flashy new wife, whom Arbuckle suspects is a golddigger. They are barely out to sea when a man is pushed overboard.

In this ninth Daisy adventure, she's pulled into a mystery through no fault of her own, especially after Alec develops seasickness. I did find myself a bit resentful of Arbuckle's role in their ending up aboard ship in the first place--yeah, I know; story ends here if he hadn't, but really... Their shipboard company varies from commonplace (a country farm couple on their first vacation) to offbeat (a spinster herbalist who is constantly described as "a witch"), not to mention the ostentatious and manipulative new bride of Arbuckle's partner, Jethro Gotobed. 1920s shipboard life is portrayed vividly, and of course Daisy does what she does best: sleuth and exasperate Alec. Missed in this adventure is Alec's solid partner, Sgt. Tring, but there's enough shipboard intrigue to keep all busy. Still spiffing!

Daisy Dalrymple is always great; but there have been better ones. Daisy should stay in England where she does her best work.
