Description

Each of the three leads is given narrative focus at different points in the novel and Watson moves between these with ease, really building a remarkable amount of intrigue and tension.

The way in which the author has at the start of each chapter an extract from one of the Dahlia books is brilliant ( i would love to read them . Especially, because in the last two chapters, they build up Nina as being the perfect suspect with a very valid motive, but then Watson decides that she wants to dabble with twists and throw in one that doesn't make sense, so it's revealed that it was Tristan all along (The charismatic young actor, who is good looking to the level where he even seduces the wife of the Inn owner) And why? Book two of the Three Dahlias crime fiction series, sees our three heroes, Rosalind, Caro and Posy on a film set in North Wales. If you haven't read The Three Dahlias I recommend that you do and then immediately follow it with A Very Lively Murder.Before the three friends can solve the mystery, a death occurs leading the Dahlias to also start their own murder investigation. The Three Dahlias are back in this winning and absolute gift of a mystery that evokes perfectly the classic stories of Agatha Christie with the wit and imagination of Anthony Horowitz and the clever and sinister. But filming must continue, nothing can stop it until there is a victim, a wild storm that strands them all and the possibility of another murder about to take place. Things turn even darker when a crew member disappears suddenly and an actress working on the film is killed in a hit and run accident, and suspicion falls on Kit, Posy’s friend and costar, who was previously involved with her. Ex-child star Posy Starling is finally filming her dream role - Dahlia Lively in The Lady Detective movie.

The Three Dahlias refers to Dahlia Lively a fictional lady detective and the three different actresses who have played her over the years. Rosalind is coming to terms with now being reduced to cameo roles and Caro is thinking about a future outside of acting.This is the second in the Dahlia Lively series and it follows on from the first, so I would recommend that you read that one prior to this to fully understand the characters. Ever since reading The Three Dahlias last year I have been eager to read the next instalment in the series. Reminiscent of Golden Age whodunits, as with the first novel, it manages to feel like a traditional mystery yet modern and fresh.
