Styx and Stones ~~ Carola Dunn

Styx and Stones by Carola Dunn
Unflappable flapper and Town & Country scribe Daisy Dalrymple has delighted fans with her investigations among the shell-shocked, post-World War I elite of England. Now, Carola Dunn's clever heroine is back, searching for a killer whose vicious pen matches a murderous heart...

The uncomfortable summer heat could put anyone on edge, but to Daisy Dalrymple, it does seem that her brother-in-law, Lord John Frobisher, is exceptionally tense--and with good reason. Someone with a rather nasty sense of humor is sending him a series of "poison pen" letters that threaten to reveal racy secrets which could ruin him completely. Promising to protect Lord John from public scandal, Daisy travels to his quaint Kent village and discovers it's teeming with enough gossip, resentment and intrigue to make everyone a suspect...and a potential blackmail victim. The sin afoot in the country makes Daisy's bohemian Chelsea neighborhood seem positively prim. It isn't long before malice turns to murder, and the town vicar is found bludgeoned by a mysteriously fallen stone cherub. Someone isn't just playing games anymore, and Daisy is determined to find a malevolent avenging angel before the ink dries on her own death warrant....
