    1 thought on “The Case of the Murdered Muckraker”

    1. I didn’t like this book as well as most of the others in the Daisy Dalrymple series. The story deviates from the usual plotline of the series, both in structure and in characters, and the differences are glaring. First, the action takes place in America, not in Britain, and I commiserated with Daisy, as she struggles to understand the land and its people, as well as translate the frequently unfamiliar vernacular. She wondered why Americans insisted that they spoke English, when they might just [...]

    2. This was awful. Even with the expectation that this series is fluff that can be read in a few hours, this was bad. There's no more than an anecdote's worth of plot, and far less action than a (view spoiler)[cross-country air chase, of all things, (hide spoiler)] would imply. I was convinced that this book was a hundred pages longer than the others in the series, and shocked to discover it's about the same as the rest. I don't know what the point of setting the book in New York was, if all your c [...]

    3. this wasn't amazing - in fact, i feel as though it just ended. however, Dunn definitely gets points for her descriptions of the countryside, flying in a small plane years ago when flight was still newwhat I think is interesting about these books is that Dunn does a great job of describing the era (in this case, J. Edgar Hoover is just appearing on the national scene) in a way that makes you think of some history in ways you haven't before. all that while at the same time providing a mystery. not [...]

    4. Probably my least favorite of her books so far. Not sure why as the setting was good and all the characters likable. The mystery seemed muddled though. Still a favorite cozy series so much so that I’ve kept these books to read again. That’s rare for me anymore. 3.5 stars

    5. While the story itself was a lot of fun, the hokey americanisms really grated on me after awhile. I'm sure that NY police in the 20s didn't say Gee whiz & Punk on a regular basis like this book claims. Not my favourite Daisy book.

    6. Out of her normal comfort zone of country houses, The Honourable Daisy Dalrymple, or more correctly at this time, Mrs Alec Fletcher, finds herself in New York where husband Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of the Metropolitan Police, or as he prefers to put it for good effect New Scotland Yard, has gone to advise J Edgar Hoover.Left alone in New York it is no surprise that Daisy soon finds herself involved in a suspected murder. Minding her own business in the hotel, she suddenly sees a m [...]

    7. Aw, gee! This was baaad!Poor Daisy hasn't just traveled west, she's gone south, way south accompanied by a set of cardboard characters and an unbelievably cheesy "american" dialogue. What can I say?After a hundred pages I felt a desperate craving for a good old fashioned butler. Shuffling around on tired worn out feet. In a dusty library. With an overweight labrador snoozing in a corner, smelling of wet hair and silent farts. (And after a hundred and fifty I was tempted to chuck the whole thing [...]

    8. Normally I enjoy Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, but this one was truly, atrociously awful. The plot was very thin, and the actual motive for the murder was the least convincing I've ever heard. (And I write as someone who's read a lot of murder mysteries). The author set it in 1920's America, and what let the book down was the constant written word of American slang, together with the author's constant 'translating' US into British English, which was irritating and very much over the t [...]

    9. Didn't enjoy this as much as other Daisy Dalrymple stories, probably because it was written to bring the characters to Oregon where Carola Dunn lives and has been badgered somewhat by local fans. It wasn't too difficult to get Daisy to New York, since she writes for an American magazine, although the cost of a ship passage would be a little steep just to talk with her editor so having the Chief Inspector briefly seconded to American Intelligence helps with that. Getting her across the continent, [...]

    10. I found this book ultimately well mediocre honesty it's the first of this series I have read so I can't compare it to others but scanning the reviews on here it does seem this may just be a odd dip of quality from a author who has seemingly delivered.Murder/Mystery type books always have to be slow paced to build up the big reveal but the problem with this book is the plot seems thinner than the paper it's printed on. go into it would probably generate spoilers rapidly so I won't bother.However [...]

    11. 2.5 stars. I really hope Daisy goes back to England in the next book. I'm tired of the audiobook narrator's "American" accents. She does some of them just fine, but gives inexplicable drawls to others that are really obnoxious. The other reason I had to rate this one lower is because of "Oh Sister! Oh Dear!" repeated ad nauseum. At a couple of points I yelled at that character to just. Shut. Up.

    12. This is the 1st Daisy mystery that was disappointing. Taking place in the U.S it is full of odd interpretations of how Americans talk, which sound ridiculous & irritating. The story itself just didn't spark my interest & imagination as the others have done. It wasn't bad; it just wasn't as entertaining as those I've read so far. Perhaps the next in the series will restore my faith in Daisy.

    13. Not my favorite Daisy Dalrymple mystery. Daisy is off on her own in New York while Alec is meeting with officials in Washington, D.C. I missed the interaction between Alec and Daisy. The mystery wasn't as compelling and I felt like it was too drawn out. Hoping the next book will be better.

    14. This wasn't one of the better Dalrymple mysteries. It was pretty lightweight in the mystery department, and pretty far-fetched in the chase scenes, but some interesting notes about cross-country air travel and Bessie Coleman.

    15. I agree with the many othersis wasn't Carola Dunn's best in this series. It left me feeling disappointed. And the ending was so abrupt, like she was tired of writing this and just stopped.

    16. I liked the flight. And the pilot lady. And Daisy's American editor. The rest of it just happened.

    17. No Thanks read 50% and it is just a bunch of British dialogue, interesting to listen, but did not grab me

    18. It was an easy read, if you've read other Daisy Dalrymple books you wont be surprised or disappointed.

    19. Not my favorite. Daisy needs to go back to England. All the American characters seemed stereotypical and overdone.

    20. Please show me one single non-stupid action in the whole book. I must have been distracted by something in the ten seconds it happened.

    21. #10 in the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple (and her husband Scotland Yard Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher), magazine writer and heiress (no inheritance due to British entailed system) mystery series. It is October 31, 1923, Daisy is in New York City for a couple of days to meet with her primary magazine editor while Alex is startling his assignment with the FBI in Washington, D.C. It is not long before she is a witness to a murder and manages to insert herself into the middle of the investigat [...]

    22. I’ve been enjoying this series very much, but this installment was just a mess. I was expecting a caper solved alongside Hoover’s New FBI, but was happy enough with Daisy going solo in Prohibition New York. Then a cross-country plane chase comes out of nowhere, and isn’t believable for one second. Keeping my fingers crossed for the next one.

    23. Daisy Dalrymple goes to America to write a series of articles on her impressions of America in The Case of the Murdered Muckraker, the tenth in the Daisy Dalrymple series by Carola Dunn, and stumbles over yet another body. While visiting the office of her American editor, Daisy sees a man open up the door to the elevator to peer down, only to see him get shot in the leg and fall down the shaft, breaking his neck in the process. Trying to chase the man running away from the scene, Daisy is stoppe [...]
