The Brit Lit Book Club will discuss “Heirs of the Body: A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery” by Carola Dunnon Monday, November 24th at 1:00 p.m. In the late 1920’s in England the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is recruited to help her cousin Edgar, i.e., the Lord Dalrymple. About to turn fifty, Lord Dalrymple decides it is time to find out who would be the heir to the viscountcy. With the help of the family lawyer, who advertises Empire-wide, they have come up with four potential claimants. For his fiftieth birthday, Edgar invites those would-be heirs along with Daisy and the rest of the family to Fairacres, the family estate. In the meantime, Daisy is asked to be the family’s representative at the lawyer’s interviews with the claimants. Those four are a hotelier from Scarborough, a diamond merchant from South Africa, a young mixed-raced boy from Trinidad, and a sailor from Jamaica. However, according to his very pregnant wife, the sailor has gone missing. Daisy and Alec must uncover a conspiracy if they are going to stop the killing in the latest from the accomplished master of the genre, Carola Dunn.
