May the best man die!

July, 1923, and Daisy has been invited by an American magazine to cover the Henley Regatta. But unknown to her, she steps right into a class war between two members of the Oxford rowing team. Cox Horace Bott - a shopkeeper's son and scholar student - has always hated rower Basil DeLancy - younger son of an earl and all-round cad and bully. And after a particularly brutal public humiliation by DeLancy, Bott swears revenge - so when DeLancy keels over and dies mid-race, it would seem he's made good on his promise.

Yet Daisy isn't convinced, and with the help of her fiance Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, she dives into a tangled web of jealousies and secrets, where appearances are everything and good breeding may just be a cover for a killer intent on keeping Daisy mum forever...


Praise for the Daisy Dalrymple series:

'Cunning... appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece.' Publishers Weekly

'As always, Dunn evokes the life and times of 1920s England while providing a plot that is a cut above the average British cosy. This will delight readers who love country-house mysteries.' Booklist

'A dauntless Daisy and good-natured fun.' Kirkus Reviews

'For fans of Dorothy L. Sayers' novels' Library Journal
