Sintesi dell'editore

In late 1923, the newly married Daisy Dalrymple and her husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, come to America for a honeymoon visit. In the midst of a pleasure trip, however, both work in a bit of business - Alec travels to Washington, DC, to consult with the US government, Daisy to New York to meet with her American magazine editor.

While in New York, Daisy stays at the famed Hotel Chelsea, which is not only close to the Flatiron Building offices of Abroad magazine, where she'll be meeting with her editor, but home to many of New York's artists and writers.

After her late-morning meeting, Daisy agrees to accompany her editor, Mr. Thorwald, to lunch. But as they are leaving the offices, they hear a gunshot and see a man plummeting down an elevator shaft. The man killed was one of her fellow residents at the Hotel Chelsea, Otis Carmody, who was a journalist with no end of enemies - personal and professional - who would delight in his death. Again in the midst of a murder investigation, Daisy's search for the killer takes her to all levels of society - and even on a mad dash across the country - as she attempts to solve a puzzle that would baffle even Philo Vance himself.

Do not waste your money!

I’ve enjoyed some of the Daisy Dalrymple mysteries especially those narrated by someone other than this narrator. She’s horrible. I couldn’t stand listening to her American accents and her exaggerated vocal tones. Plus the story is just not as interesting as some of the others. I did not even finish listening to it — that’s how bad it was.

Too, too tiresome

The arrogant, stupid, bad tempered America cops where bad enough, but the high pitch whiny voices that only bats could hear made me want to scream.
I’ve never listened to a book which this many shallow characters.

Narrator Lucy Rayner HIGH PITCHED SQUEAKY voices

This long loved series is experiencing unpleasant auditory challenges after the change over to the potentially talented narrator, Lucy Rayner’s, interpretations of female and children's dialogue. Often Lucy speaks with such high a pitch voice, higher than mini mouse squeaky, and as unpleasant to listen to as nails on a chalk board. This specific narrator is ruining this series, for me at least. I understand that voice pitch and tone is a personal preference, but i may have to give up on the series and return the books i have purchased ahead because i am reaching my limit for auditory pain and suffering. Sad, really very sad. Great series. Talented narrator not receiving good direction and feedback

Better in text

It was nice to have a story with a different setting, but several of the characters were horribly annoying to listen to. It wasn't so bad in text but the repeated 'oh dear's were incredibly annoying (and in an oddly upper-midwestern accent) the bumbling fledgling FBI agent was also grating to listen to. I would just read this one, rather than listen, tho it's hardly the fault of the narrator. I did 'find fault' with the plodding pace of dialogue for daisy's editor. It just made him seem daft, not intelligent.

The story was good, tho 'who-dun-it' was quite obvious to everyone (even the characters) early on. This one needed a few more red herrings, tho it was still enjoyable. It just wasn't really a mystery...

It's pronounced pæns nay, not pince nezz!

I love this series, but I am so tired of narrators who don't know how to pronounce words! Both this narrator and the previous one in the series need to read ahead and double-check words they don't know! If this one says pince nezz one more time in this book, instead of the proper pronunciation of pince-nez, I'm going to move on to another series.

Meh....

This book was O.K. It never really caught my attention, Daisy has become annoying again and Alec, her Husband, just laps it up like her obedient hound. I'll probably get the next one, I might as well continue since I'm about 1/2 through the series. I just hope the next one up in the series is better.

Where did it all go wrong??

I returned this book about halfway through very disappointed both in the story and the narration. I was surprised at the disjointed plot and cartoon-like characters, which also didn't benefit from the shrill, high soprano narration. I'd been binging and thoroughly enjoying the series when somehow it seemed to take a drastic wrong turn. The change in narration a couple of books back was a shame but didn't become painful to listen to until this volume. Daisy's become silly and scatter-brained instead of smart, kind, resourceful and independent, and Alec seems cold and faceless. I'll give it one more try in the next volume and hope Daisy and I don't have to part company. A closing request: please don't change narrators mid-series!

Love the story but not the narrator.

As always, Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple is a great read. The narrator though is a bit shrill to the point of hurting my ears.

Excellent!

As I expected, Carola Dunn brought Daisy, Alec and all those involved in the mystery to life. My FAVORITE part of this book (or any of the other Daisy Mysteries) is the journey across America. That's all I will say.
The narrator, also, brought everyone to life with her personality catching voices An excellent read AND listen
Thank you Ms Dunn for sharing you talent with us.

Awful

Any additional comments?

This has to be the worst Daisy Dalrymple book it has been my misfortune to listen to, or even read. If I said it was boring it would be an understatement. Shame really most of her other books I have enjoyed, although the one before this one was not as good as it might have been.

What one has come to expect

What one has come to expect from Daisy and her author , gentle engrossing entertainment. I still find the narration slightly odd the lady tries too hard.

The Best All Around in This Series

1. The narration was the best that it’s ever been.
2. The characters were in turn, likeable, quirky and on the whole, caricatures of their kind…
3. The story flowed because of it, no needles details.

The Case of recoNsidered Muckraker

This is a great chase across New York which then turns into a chase across America. While trying to convince that she is not making it worse. Read brilliantly by Lucy Rayner.

Narrator

At last an excellent narrator, so much better to listen to, which makes these books much more enjoyable. Nearly gave up reading them due to dreadful accents reading so many words badly, I'm glad I didn't though this lady so good

Awful accents . Needed 2 storytellers.

Would have been so much better if because of the amount of male and female voices and different accents needed that a man and woman could have read this . The Chicago style “mafia “ cop voice was awful and so was one of the sisters who just seem to screech “oh myyyyyy” a lot . Story line was interesting until the last 3 chapters when it just faded and the end was lacking in everything.
