Rattle His Bones ~~ Carola Dunn


Description
Rattle His Bones by Carola Dunn
Critics hail Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple mysteries as clever and charming whodunits that make 1923 England come alive in vivid, cozy color. Now, in this latest outing, the Honorable Daisy is at it again, exhuming a murderer hiding among the bones at London's esteemed Natural History Museum...

As a gray drizzle descends upon the damp errand boys and busy omnibuses of London, Daisy Dalrymple is feeling rather cheerful, happy to be home again and excited to show her nephew and future stepdaughter the glories of London's Natural History Museum. But it isn't the bones that are rattling about in the great halls, rather the barely repressed rivalry and jealousy--particularly between the curators of the museum's paleontology department and its equally impressive gem collection. As closing time nears, Daisy hears a tremendous crash and is startled to discover one of the gentlemen has been murdered and left amid a pile of dinosaur bones. Enlisting the aid of her fiance, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, Daisy soon investigates a baffling case of missing gems, dispossessed European royalty, fakery and fossils, where professional grudges boil over into murder...and a killer has no bones about keeping Daisy from uncovering the sordid truth...
