    DescriptionIn December 1923, Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher yields to the demands of her mother and the needs of her writing career and brings her family to an old Cornish estate for Christmas. The estate, occupied by the poor relations of the ancestral lord, has a rich history of lore, ghost stories, and festering resentments some or all of which leaves them all trapped in a house with the corpse of a despotic chaplin and a murderer. Daisy's husband Inspector Alec is forced to give up his Christmas break to help Daisy solve the mystery. Critical Praise for "The Daisy Dalrymple novels" by Carola Dunn: '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." 'Styx and Stones is a swift, deeply enjoyable read. While Dunn's influences are many, she ultimately makes this territory her own' - "The Register-Guard." 'Reading like an Agatha Christie thriller, "Rattle His Bones" is a charming look at life after the first World War' - "Romantic Times." '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' - "Publisher's Weekly" on "The Case of the Murdered Muckraker."
