Riassunto: In the summer of 1924, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is off on a holiday by the sea with her step-daughter Belinda, Belinda's chum Deva, and Daisy's husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard. Daisy is anticipating a relaxing, nondramatic holiday--but Daisy doesn't have that kind of luck. It seems that a low-rent Don Juan has been busily seducing the local womenfolk, and, in a town this small, no secret is kept for long. When the Fletchers' picnic is interrupted by the discovery of a broken body at the foot of the cliff, that of the philandering local innkeeper, the unflappable Daisy Dalrymple finds herself embroiled in a mystery. Like Jacqueline Winspear's much praised novels about Maisy Dobbs, Carola Dunn vividly evokes the life and times of 1920s England wrapped in a classic mystery to delight her many fans.
From the Inside Flap:
In the summer of 1924, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher has planned a quiet, relaxing holiday in the small costal town of Westcombe. With her husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, planning to join them later, Daisy went ahead with her step-daughter Belinda and Belinda’s chum Deva. Currently three months pregnant, Daisy is looking forward to a relaxing, non-dramatic vacation of quiet strolls along the cliffs and days down at the beach. But Daisy doesn’t have that kind of luck and the seemingly quiet seaside town turns out to be a small hotbed of rumor and scandal. It seems much of it is centered around local lothario George Enderby – the married owner of the local pub – who keeps himself busy attempting seduction of whatever women cross his path. And in a town this small, no indiscretion remains secret for very long. Which is clearly illustrated when the husband of one of his rumored conquests assaults the innkeeper in full view.
The last vestige of the idyllic vacation dissipates shortly thereafter when the Fletchers, planning a simple picnic, discover Enderby’s broken body at the foot of a sea cliff. With murder the most obvious conclusion, Alec’s vacation is cut short by the official investigation. But it is up to Daisy to uncover the truth lurking behind the rumors, gossip, and closely held secrets of this small town if the killer is ever to be found.
