Having dropped PC Pickett off in Ayot Lawrence, they were on the road to London Not that, exactly. At least, I don’t think so, do you, Chief?’. Not if you take that to mean someone adept at slipping through our fingers. I have no sense of his being involved in anything shady. Excessively law-abiding?’ queried Tom dryly. Not from our point of view, anyway. But there’s something excessive about that family.

Anthem for Doomed Youth book. Carola Dunn returns with a particularly strong entry in her Daisy Dalrymple series in Anthem for Doomed Youth. Eight years after the Armistice that brought to a close the First World War, implications from that arise again in one of Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher's more grisly cases. He gets a report that three bodies have been found in Epping Forest, the stereotypical burying ground of murdered bodies from London.

Can patter out their hasty orisons. No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells; Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,- The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells; And bugles calling for them from sad shires. What candles may be held to speed them all? Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes.

Alec Fletcher's plans to attend his daughter Belinda's school sports day are thwarted by the discovery of three bodies buried in Epping forest. Sent to investigate, he and his team are hindered from the start by uncooperative Essex policeman, DI Gant, who resents Scotland Yard encroaching on his patch. But a bigger problem, however, is identifying the victims and finding a common link between them to explain their being buried so close together, though at intervals of several months. When Alec tells Daisy about the case, she's hooked, and with her own bit of digging around, uncovers the fact that one of the victims was a colonel. Is there a military connection? And when the police eventually discover that the other victims did serve with the colonel, this becomes a tragic case with its roots firmly buried in events during the Great War. Praise for the "Daisy Dalrymple" series: "Cunning ...appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece". ("Publisher's 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").

Fantastic take on the tragedy of the First World War wrapped up in a lovely mystery split into two parts, lots of favourite characters makes this one a favourite

It is hard to believe that only eight years after the end of the Great War, it took Daisy and Alec so long to figure out the reason for the murders. As soon as I read about the pertinent clue, I knew what had happened. Daisy's friend, Sakari, was rather annoying, but most of the characters were more likable. Was happy to see that Alec seemed to be more the focus of attention rather than Daisy in this one.
