Book Overview

In September 1925, Scotland Yard DCI Alec Fletcher inherits a large house on the outskirts of London, from a recently deceased great-uncle. Fortunately so, as he and his wife, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, are the recent proud parents of twins and their house is practically bursting at the seams. Though in need of a bit of work, this new, larger house seems a godsend- set in a small circle of houses, with a communal garden and Hamstead...

Black Ship

This is one of the best Daisy Dalrymple mysteries I have read. She makes the whole 1920's world of England interesting and exciting. a good read.


Very enjoyable,cozy, british mystery. One feels as if one is having a cup of tea in Daisy's sitting room.

Another great Daisy Dalrymple mystery

If you love Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, this one will not disappoint. The family has moved into a new home near Hempstead Heath and a body is found in the square(actually a circle). There is some history of the illegal importation of spirits to America from England during Prohibition woven into the mystery. Be sure to read these mysteries in order--they are so much more enjoyable that way.

Great!! One of my favorite authors and this is one of the better books in this series. Everybody will find something in it to enjoy. Well written.

Black Ship

This is the fourth book of Carola Dunn's that I have read and I really enjoy her writing. This book, Black Ship is no exception, the characters are well written and I thought the storyline was good. The Black Ship is part of a series, "A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery" so a large part of the cast, if you have read any of the Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries, are familiar names, if not, you will be introduced to them and hopefully want to read other books by Ms Dunn. All of the stories take place in England and Daisy is forever frustrating her poor husband Alec who is a CID detective because she seems to insert herself in whatever murder comes up - it seems to find her! People tell her things that they won't tell the police so she ends up helping the police with solving the crime. The stories are cozy and fun and I recommend them to any one who enjoys reading a good English mystery.
