Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries

Set in 1920s England, a nation barely starting to recover from World War I and now undergoing rapid social changes, Carola Dunn’s Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries follow the investigations of a charming, vivacious, and perspicacious writer whose sleuthing skills help Scotland Yard’s Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher brings murderers to justice.

“Dunn’s forebears are writers such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers. They set the standard for classic cozy puzzles, and Heirs of the Body’s unfussy prose and straightforward plot lend themselves well to this venerable tradition.”—Seattle Times
