Pressestimmen

"Dunn captures the melting pot of Prohibition-era New York with humorous characterizations and a vivid sense of place, and with careful plotting lays out an enjoyable tale of adventure."--"Publishers Weekly""The NYC of the jazz age as seen through the eyes of an Englishwoman adds a charm to this standard story of detection. The character of Daisy is always pleasing, but it is the inhabitants of the Chelsea who will captivate readers."--"Romantic Times"

Kurzbeschreibung

In late 1923, the newly married Daisy Dalrymple and her husband Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, come to America for a honeymoon visit. In the midst of a pleasure trip, however, both work in a bit of business - Alec travels to Washington, D. C. to consult with the U.S. government, Daisy to New York to meet with her American magazine editor. While in New York, Daisy stays at the famed Chelsea Hotel, which is not only close to the Flatiron Building offices of Abroad magazine, where she'll be meeting with her editor, but home to many of New York's artists and writers.

After her late morning meeting, Daisy agrees to accompany her editor, Mr. Thorwald, to lunch but as they are leaving the offices, they hear a gun shot and see a man plummeting down an elevator shaft. The man killed was one of her fellow residents at the Chelsea Hotel, Otis Carmody, who was a journalist with no end of enemies - personal and professional - who would delight in his death. Again in the midst of a murder investigation, Daisy's search for the killer takes her to all levels of society, and even a mad dash across the country itself, as she attempts to solve a puzzle that would baffle even Philo Vance himself.

Das gibt der Autorin die Gelegenheit, sowohl einen neuen Jargon, als auch neue Lokalitäten auszuprobieren, von der damals noch ziemlich neuen Fliegerei ganz zu schweigen. Das macht die Geschichte dann doch etwas verwirrlich, da einfach etwas zu viel hineingequetscht wird. Dennoch ist es detailgetreu und unterhaltsam geschrieben,wenn auch der Plot leider eher lau ist.

HASH(0x9fca0720) von 5 Sternen a fun read 11. Februar 2002
Von tregatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This latest Daisy Dalrymple mystery novel is not that much of a murder mystery at all, and more of an adventure abroad novel. However it is also the most light hearted of the Daisy Dalrymple mystery novels to date, and quite a bit of fun.
For Daisy and her husband Alec (a DCI with Scotland Yard), this visit to the United States of America is supposed to be a honeymoon trip. The reality is that Alec is in America in order to advise the Americans (J. Edgar Hoover in particular) on how to clean up and set up their Investigation Bureau of the Justice Department. So while Alec is stuck in Washington, Daisy is in New York, gathering material for her magazine articles and meeting her American editor. After one such meeting, while on their way to lunch, Daisy and her editor hear a gunshot and witness a man plummet to his death down an elevator shaft. Daisy quickly recognizes the murdered man as a fellow resident of the Chelsea Hotel. She then discovers that he is/was the journalist, Otis Carmody, an investigative reporter, also known as a 'muckraker.' It soon becomes apparent that Daisy, her editor, and a federal agent that had been shadowing Daisy (Alec's superior at the Scotland Yard had apparently warned Hoover that it would be wise to provide a watchdog for her as Daisy has the habit of getting involved in all kinds of unsavory goings-on) are the only credible witnesses to the Carmody's death (which of course turns out to be murder). Why was Carmody murdered and who committed the crime? Striking up friendships with other guests (and workers) at the Chelsea, Daisy discovers that Carmody was quite the crusading journalist, and that he had angered more than his fair share of dangerous and powerful men. Could one of them have commissioned Carmody's murder? And then there is the tantalising information about Carmody's estranged wife and her shady lover... Before long Daisy discovers that New York is not England, and that she could be in danger herself because she witnessed Carmody's murderer escaping. Never before has Daisy missed Alec so much or wished that she did not have this propensity to fall over a murder wherever she went.
"The Case of the Murdered Muckraker" is strictly for Daisy Dalrymple fans. It is a lighthearted read full of eccentric and quirky characters, and funny moments when Daisy ponders over the differences between the English that the British speak and the English that the American speak -- how this brought back memories of my first few years in the US -- and the differences between the manner in which Scotland Yard would have run things and the manner in which the New York detectives carry out an investigation. And while there some gathering of information and sounding out of theories, this mystery novel is still not much of a murder mystery like the previous Daisy Dalrymple mystery novels -- no red herrings, twists and turns in plot development, etc. However it is a charming and humourous book, that is bound to entertain and lighten the mood. And Carola Dunn does a wonderful job of bringing to life Prohibition-era New York, as well as certain character types. So read it for fun and entertainment and a bit of a laugh, and read something else if you're in the mood for a wicked murder mystery.

HASH(0x9fab1348) von 5 Sternen Very Disappointing 20. Januar 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Fans who have enjoyed this series so far will be disappointed by this disjointed jumble of mystery, travelog, and fanciful biography. All begins well as Daisy witnesses the murder of an unpleasant muckracking reporter. The reporter's faithless wife and her beau make an appearance. Unnameed powerful political enemies and a mysterious cousin are suggested as suspects, but never become part of the real story. No new clues are introduced and a lot of time is spent on impugning the competence of the FBI and the honesty of New York City police. Alex finally returns from Washington after an extended stay with J.Edgar Hoover,(interesting choice of partner for his honeymoon!) Daisy thinks she glimpses a man wearing a hat similar to someone she saw in the hallway during the murder. (I'm not making this up.) Based on this brainwave Daisy, Alex, and the FBI agent begin a transcontinental chase that begins in a taxi cab and then languishes in a bi-plane for several chapters. Bessie Coleman becomes a pinch-hitting pilot for them and we are treated to Carloa Dunn's idea of African American dialect as Bessie shares the story of her life. (These are interesting facts that have absolutely no bearing on the slowly lumbering plot.) Meanwhile criminal has been thoughtful enough to hijack several mail planes while he is on the lam. This is very useful since there is no evidence to connect him to the murder and the world's flimsiest is cranked out in the last pages. Eventually we are told the murderer was arrested. (Daisy chose to hide behind the plane while this was going on, so the readers have to use their own imaginations for the climax of the story. While they're at it the readers may as well imagine the whole thing and save themselves the price of this hodge podge.

HASH(0x9ffda5a0) von 5 Sternen Skip This One, Too! 20. April 2008
Von Porkchop T. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Until now, the Daisy Dalrymple series has been fairly enjoyable. This book, however, is a HUGE disappointment. The previous book, To Davy Jones Below, set on the high seas, was bearable. This one isn't. Set in New York City and ultimately Eugene, Oregon (author Carola Dunn's current home) the book is a hodgepodge. The identity of the murder victim, the "Murdered Muckraker" of the title, is vague. He was a muckraker? The plot is weak and the book is overloaded with characters of little interest. Daisy's new husband, Alec, appears briefly at the end of the book. Overall, this is a disasterous potboiler just barely keeping the series alive. I plodded to the finish of this book but I'm not giving up yet. Hopefully, when Daisy goes home to England, the next book will be better.

HASH(0x9faa1294) von 5 Sternen Doesn't deliver the goods 27. Mai 2004
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I enjoy Daisy Dalrymple books. This one has Daisy staying in New York, working on a series of articles about America for an American magazine. While there (here's a shocker!) she's a witness to a murder.
OK, no problem. This now gives Dunn a reason to talk about America in the 1920's. She throws in Tammany Hall, J. Edgar Hoover, Prohibition, racial discrimination, the plight of the immigrant, etc, etc. I could put up with that, mostly, if there was a great plot. But there's not. The plot is rather thin. And the American dialect and jargon she throws in is so distracting that I kept losing sight of the story. I was really disappointed in this one. Please, Dunn, keep Daisy in England where she belongs!

I have enjoyed the previous Daisy mysteries but this one is just tedious. There was only so much I could take of the inept American police/Tammany Hall politics before I needed something to happen. This is not one of her best.
