Dandy Gilver and a Deadly Measure of Brimstone

Historischer Krimi von Catriona McPherson

Perthshire 1929 and the menfolk of the Gilver family have come down, between them, with influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia and pleurisy. Dandy the devoted wife and mother decides it is time to decamp; Dandy the intrepid detective, however, decides to decamp to the scene of a murder she would dearly love to solve. The family repairs to the Borders town of Moffat, there to drink the sulphurous waters straight from the well and to submit to the galvanic wraps and cold salt rubs of the splendid Laidlaw Hydropathic Hotel.

Catriona McPherson stammt aus Schottland und da spielen auch ihre amüsanten historischen Krimis rund um eine Familie der gehobenen Gesellschaft. “Set in a bygone era, humorous and well plotted. It is nice to catch up with Dandy Gilver and her family. Set in a health resort with a fair sprinkling of mutters and murders, but all harmless fun.” (Leser) (14 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 304 Seiten noch günstig?

Dandy Gilver and The Reek of Red Herrings

Historischer Krimi von Catriona McPherson

On the rain-drenched, wave-lashed, wind-battered Banffshire coast, tiny fishing villages perch on ledges which would make a seagull think twice and crumbly mansions cling to crumblier cliff tops while, out in the bay, the herring drifters brave the storms to catch their silver darlings. It’s nowhere for a child of gentle Northamptonshire to spend Christmas. But when odd things start to turn up in barrels of fish – with a strong whiff of murder most foul – that’s exactly where Dandy Gilver finds herself.

Weiter geht es an Weihnachten – alles andere als beschaulich! “What a mistress of the macabre Ms McPherson is! And this Christmas story had a very appropriate seasonal twist in its tail.” (Leserin) (18 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 320 Seiten noch günstig?

Dandy Gilver and the Unpleasantness in the Ballroom

Historischer Krimi von Catriona McPherson

Glasgow,1932, is a city in the grip of dance-fever. Public ballrooms and backstreet dancehalls are thronged every night and competition for professional titles is fierce. Even after the sudden death of one of last year’s hopefuls there are plenty willing to take his place, and few who stop to wonder why he died. In the melting pot of the Locarno Ballroom in Sauchiehall Street, a debutante rubs shoulders with denizens of Glasgow’s meanest streets, her respectable fiancé oblivious, her parents dismayed.

Tödliche Tänze! “The greasepaint, the noise of the shoes on the wooden dance floor and the swish of the coattails and dressed spin you into a frenzy as you read.” (Leser) (15 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 321 Seiten noch günstig?
