    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 fiance 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. 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. 'A dauntless Daisy and good-natured fun' - Kirkus Reviews. 'For fans of Dorothy L. Sayers' novels' - Library Journal.
