    1. Elizabeth Daly 1878 1967 was born in New York City and educated at Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania and Columbia University She was a reader in English at Bryn Mawr and tutored in English and French She was awarded an Edgar in 1960 Her series character is Henry Gamadge, an antiquarian book dealer.Daly works in the footsteps of Jane Austen, offering an extraordinarily clear picture of society in her time through the interactions of a few characters In that tradition, if you knew a person s family history, general type, and a few personal quirks, you could be said to know everything worth knowing about that person Today the emphasis is on baring the darkest depths of psycho and socio pathology contemporary readers raised on this style may find Ms Daly both elitist and somewhat facile But fans of classic movies and whodunits know that a focus on polished surfaces brings with it the possibility of hidden secrets and things unsaid for those who disdain the obvious confessional style of today, the Gamadge books have much to recommend them.Elizabeth Daly now seems sadly forgotten by many which a shame as all her books are superbly crafted and plotted, indeed she counted none other than Agatha Christie as one of her fans She published sixteen books all of which featured her main series character Henry Gamadge He is a bibliophile and expert on rare books and manuscripts which makes her books particularly appealing to fans of the bibliomystery There was some disparity between UK and US releases some being published out of sequence, the bibliography shown follows the US editions which are the true firsts Murder Listens In and Shroud for a Lady are re titled reissues of earlier books.

    2. Nothing Can Rescue Me by Elizabeth Dalye title is oh so right. Nothing can rescue Sylvanus Hutter from the brutal blow dealt to him by an unseen hand wielding a Chinese bronze statue. Nothing can rescue his sister Florence Hutter Mason from the poison planted in her iron pills. Not even having Henry Gamadge on the spot and prepared for something malicious to happenSylvanus approaches Gamadge at their club and asks him to come with him to Underhill, the Hutter family's country estate f.

    3. This is one of the best of this series of book with our detective Gamage. In this story, Gamage is on his own, he comes to a large old manor and finds many of the struggling hangers on that one finds living off of a wealthy relative or family friend.Something very evil has been brewing here and the murders are shocking when you read them, cause they feel so unreal. A tense and riveting story.

    4. By this point in Elizabeth Daly's Henry Gamadge series, certain plots are a fixture. This outing is a classic country house murder mystery, with a batch of guests living under the thumb of a capricious mistress with a penchant for changing her will. Gamadge is called in by the lady's nephew, who enjoys one-half of an inheritance with his aunt; the survivor of the pair will inherit millions, and the house at Underhill. But someone is playing disturbing games… dark messages are being typed into [...]

    5. I've kept going with this series, hoping that more would be revealed about Henry Gamadge; there has been very little detail about his family, his childhood, how he has become the expert on handwriting and printing that is invaluable to the police in New York City.

    6. I enjoyed the book, and have started another Elizabeth Daly mystery, but I could spot the perp by halfway through. Ending was a bit overelaborate.

    7. Gratamente sorprendida con esta autora completamente olvidada en los fondos de las librerías de segunda mano. Suerte que Siruela la ha rescatado y tenemos "Una dirección equivocada" en nuestras librerías. En este caso esta es la sexta entrega del detective Gamadge. Se desplazará a un caserón en el campo para tratar de resolver un misterio de acoso que mutará en asesinato. Magníficos personajes y muy buen desarrollo de la trama. Muy recomendable.

    9. I was drawn into reading Henry Gamadge mysteries because of the prominent place of books in the plot. This one is a good bibliomystery, but the book part isn't nearly as central as in some others. In this one, it's related to menacing quotations added to a manuscript in progress that he recognizes as quotations (a much more impressive feat when you couldn't just Google everything to figure that out). The Book of the Dead was a bit more forensic sciency with the book part of the investigation (ch [...]

    10. Scorre bene fino a quando Gamadge non inizia le spiegazioni finali. Lì si ingarbuglia un po' e diventa farraginoso, fra intenzioni, pensieri, idee dei vari personaggi. Gli indizi concreti veri e propri che portano Gamadge alla soluzione mi sono diventati chiari solo alla seconda lettura del cap. 19.

    11. I was a little distracted while reading this. But enjoyed it anyway. This was Agatha Christie's favorite author. I will look for more of her books.

    12. Great, classic mystery; it's been awhile since I read a Gamadge mystery, and I'd forgotten how much I like this detective.
