Publisher's Summary

Unflappable flapper and Town & Country scribe Daisy Dalrymple searches for a killer whose vicious pen matches a murderous heart in this delightful installment of Dunn's cozy mystery series.
In the 1920s, in post - World War I England, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple, newly engaged to Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher, is asked by her brother-in-law to discreetly investigate a series of poisoned pen letters that many of the local villagers have been receiving. When the pompous and unbearable brother of the local vicar is killed by a very large rock, dropped on his head from a great height, it seems clear to all that this campaign of gossip has escalated to murder. With the help of her husband, who'd rather she not get involved, Daisy tries to uncover who wrote the letters and who that person has driven to murder before the killer strikes again.

Pronunciation is odd!

Where does Styx and Stones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a reasonably entertaining audiobook.


What did you like best about this story?

I liked the early twentieth century setting in England.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Mia Chiaromonte?

I found although her voice is pleasant that her mispronunciation of certain words, particularly the vowel 'o', did jar on me. This may be the difference between British English and American English.

Accent is wrong.

It's annoying reading the book that is supposed to be English people talking when American words are used such as braid instead of plait, but to then listen to the audio and find it's an American accent too is so frustrating! Why set a book in England showing the different classes yet have an American reading. Couldn't finish listening, it was driving me mad!!! Next time, Carola Dunne should stick to setting books in America!!!!
