No stranger to sprawling country estates, well-heeled Daisy Dalrymple is breaking new ground at Wentwater Court to cover a story for "Town & Country" magazine. But her interview gives way to interrogation when suave Lord Stephen Astwick meets a chilly end on the tranquil skating pond. With evidence that his death was anything but accidental, Daisy joins forces with Scotland Yard so the culprit can't slip through their fingers like the unfortunate Astwick slipped through the ice. Praise for "The Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries": 'Appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece' - "Publishers Weekly". 'As always, Dunn evokes the life and times of 1920s England while providing a plot that is a cut above...This will delight readers who love country-house mysteries' - "Booklist".-- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .
