Dead in the Water

Carola Dunn: Dead in the Water (UK 2010)

From the Publisher:
The sixth in the Daisy Dalrymple mystery series
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 fiancé 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...

Dead in the Water

Carola Dunn: Dead in the Water (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
Witty, spirited, and oh-so-British, Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple mysteries perfectly capture the charm of the classic cozy. In the latest installment of her wildly popular series, it is July, 1923, and the Honorable Daisy is off to the races, trying to solve a murder on the Thames that is anything but good sportsmanship...

Dead In The Water
Ah, summer in Henley-on-the-Thames: The smell of the roses. The excitement of the races. The perfect setting for murder? When Daisy Dalrymple accepts an assignment to cover the Henley Royal Regatta for an American magazine, she steps right into a nasty class war between two members of the Oxford rowing team. Coxswain Horace Bott - a shopkeeper's son and scholarship student - has always resented rower Basil DeLancey - younger son of an Earl and an all-around cad who takes every opportunity to goad and embarrass his impoverished teammate. After a particularly brutal public humiliation, Bott swears revenge, and when DeLancey keels over and dies mid-race, succumbing to a keen blow to the head, it would seem he's made good on his promise. But Daisy isn't convinced. With the help of her fiancé, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, Daisy dives into a tangled web of jealousies and secrets behind the closed doors of the aristocracy, where appearances are everything, and good breeding just may be hiding a killer intent on keeping Daisy mum forever...

Dead in the Water

Carola Dunn: Dead in the Water (USA 1998)

From the Publisher:
In July of 1923, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple travels to Henley-on-Thames to visit her aunt and uncle as well as to work on her latest writing assignment - to cover the Henley Royal Regatta for an American magazine.

Daisy plans a simple trip researching her article, enjoying the races, and, come the weekend, having a pleasant time with her fiance, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard. But the tensions between the Ambrose team's coxswain, Horace Bott - a shopkeeper's son and scholarship student at Oxford - and rower, Basil DeLancey - the younger son of an Earl and all-around bounder - are constantly threatening to erupt into violence. The team then proceeds to lose their next heat in the eight because Bott is ill from the previous night's overindulgence, an action he was goaded into by DeLancey. DeLancey publicly humiliates Bott. Bott, in turn, publicly swears revenge.

The following day, in the coxless four, DeLancey himself keels over and dies mid-race. Foul play is immediately suspected, with Bott the logical suspect. But nothing is obvious in this tangled web of jealousies and secrets, and while Inspector Fletcher investigates the murder, Daisy once again must ferret out the truth.

Carola Dunn: Dead in the Water. A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery. St. Martin's Press, ISBN: 0312191812 (December, 1998), 249 p., $22.95.
