Fall of a Philanderer

by Carola Dunn

Part of the Daisy Dalrymple Series

Fall of a Philanderer Synopsis

For Daisy and her husband Alec, a long-awaited break by the sea becomes a busman's holiday when a local ladies' man turns up murdered on the beach... Yet in the coastal town of Westcombe it's hard to find someone who wouldn't have wanted George Enderby dead. The married Casanova's scandalous seductions had earned him the enmity of every jilted lover and cuckolded husband in the area - not to mention the resentment of his long-suffering wife. And now, as Daisy and Alec investigate among the seaside cliffs, beautiful beach and quaint village, this holiday idyll seems nothing more than a sinister backdrop for cold blooded murder... while the murderer may be closer than Daisy thinks! Praise for the Daisy Dalrymple series: 'Cunning... appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece.' Publishers Weekly 'As always, Dunn evokes the life and times of 1920s England while providing a plot that is a cut above the average British cosy. This will delight readers who love country-house mysteries.' Booklist 'For fans of Dorothy L. Sayers' novels' Library Journal
