In 1925, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, her husband, Alec Fletcher (a Scotland Yard Detective) and their new twin infant children inherit and move to a new, larger house on the outskirts of London proper, in a stage of slight disrepair (thanks to an aged, now deceased, uncle). Set in a small circle of houses and a communal garden, it seems a near idyllic setting. That is until a dead body turns up half-hidden under the bushes of the communal garden, rumors of bootleggers, American gangsters, and an international liquor smuggling operation via black ships turn everything upside down. And it's up to Daisy - well, Alec with some help from Daisy - to find out who the dead man is, why he was murdered and who did him in!… (mais)

Alec's uncle has left him a considerable amount of property in a neighborhood amidst a square and a house as well; all contingent upon Alec & Daisy living in the house. The uncle's solicitor is hostile towards Daisy & Alec's moving in, his daughter being the wife of the son of the next door neighbors who are purveyor of spirits & "rum runners" supplying illegal liquor to prohibition era America.

When the sons meet in by the square's fountain, each accompanied by an American, a gun is drawn by one of the Americans, who is found bashed in the head & strangled, dead under a bush outside of Alec & Daisy's back door.

An interesting story that held my interest, especially in view of the fact that rum-running liquor to the u.s. was not illegal in Britain, but only in the u.s. ( )

A new house and new problems.

This follows the usual Daisy Dalrymple trope, Daisy does something and she finds a body, only this time it's the maid and the dog who find the body (which leads to a few entertaining moments with Daisy telling people it wasn't her, honest and their not believing her.. She has to admit that she has form.

There's a return visit from Agent Lambert, prohibition era illegal exports of alcohol and a bevy of new neighbours that Daisy has to get to know. There are also some reflections of the Irish War of Independence which would have been pretty fresh in people's minds - a later book is set in 1926 and the Irish War of Independence finished up in about 1922, and their are questions about one of the characters being an IRA sympathiser, which they weren't and Daisy does point this out regularly.

It's interesting to see Daisy and Alex settle into a different life and deal with some wealth. I'm looking forward to seeing how this will change their lives, lets hope the gift horse doesn't bite any harder. ( )

The Fletcher family have come into a small inheritance which means that they can leave St Johns Wood and move to a larger home in Hampstead. The house has a large communal garden and one day, not long after they've moved in, Belinda's dog, Nana, discovers the body of a dead man in the garden, it quickly becomes clear that the man in murdered and Alec is called into lead the investigation, which is centred around the lucrative trade of smuggling booze into a USA still subject to Prohibition. A solid addition to the series. ( )

The latest in the long-running Daisy Dalrymple mystery series. The Fletchers inherit a large house and move across London. Their personable new neighbors turn out to be involved in exporting wine to America in violation of Prohibition. An inept Treasury agent shows up, and soon enough there is murder. ( )

Very good installment of the Daisy Dalrymple series. I really like how real she make the period in England between the wars sound. She and Alec move into a new house with the twins and there is a murder practically on their doorstep. Bootleggers, etc. ( )
