Famous literary characters Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins once again come to life as a hilarious investigative team. Move Your Blooming Corpse explores the Edwardian racing world and the fascinating characters who people it, from jockeys to duchesses, in this delightful traditional mystery that will appeal to fans of British mysteries.
Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins are at the posh Royal Ascot, the biggest horse racing event of the season. Eliza's father is the new co-owner of a champion racehorse, and Eliza and Henry are excited to cheer the Donegal Dancer on to victory. However, their idyllic outing takes a serious turn when a victim is trampled during the Gold Cup race and someone is found murdered in the stables.
With time running out before the upcoming Eclipse Stakes, she and Higgins investigate jealous spouses, suffragettes and the colorful co-owners of the Donegal Dancer. But can they outrace the murderer, or will there be another blooming corpse at the finish line?
Some early reviews are rolling in, including Booklist—"The snappy pace and fun banter keep the story moving, while details about the suffragette movement, horse racing, fashion, and foods of the Edwardian era add plenty of appealing color, as does the quirky supporting cast.”
One reader says, "The plotting is intricate, the characters fresh and interesting, and the pace fast-moving... Terrific whodunit, well researched period piece, and just good fun with Eliza and the Professor."
Another reader says, "The follow up to Wouldn't It Be Deadly is so much fun you won't want to miss it... D. E. Ireland is right "on track" with this new mystery."
