D for Daisy (The Daisy Hayes Trilogy Book 1) Summary
World War II. During the attacks on Berlin in the winter of 1943-44, wave after wave of British bombers swept over northern Europe and dropped their lethal loads on the German capital. A fair percentage of the bombers would fail to return from these operations, and RAF planners calculated the life expectancy of the airmen in weeks rather than months.
Therefore it did not seem strange when a Lancaster named D-Daisy landed at its base in England after a bombing run, and a member of the crew was found dead.
However, one person soon came to the conclusion that this man had been murdered. And the person who discovered this happened to be blind since birth. Her name was Daisy and she was the victim’s wife. She was very blonde and very pretty; also very young. Therefore, no one would listen to her. So she was going to have to find the murderer on her own.
“Using the carefully plotted twists and turns of the murder mystery, throwing in a highly unconventional blind sleuth with her very own take on the world, Nick Aaron lifts the genre to a more thoughtful level.” - The Weekly Banner
This is the first volume of The Daisy Hayes Trilogy:
I D for Daisy
II Blind Angel of Wrath
III Daisy and Bernard
Warning: a trilogy always has the disadvantage (?) that you have to read three books in the right order. On the other hand, each of these has a beginning, a middle and an end, and could be read on its own if you’re willing to miss out on the narrative arc of the whole.
This trilogy as a whole is a story of crime, punishment, and redemption, and at the same time a portrait of the twentieth century as witnessed by one remarkable blind woman.
In the first volume Daisy Hayes is between 16 and 27, and she takes us along with her through World War II. The second volume brings us to the Swinging Sixties, Daisy is then 44. And finally in the third book she’s 66 and it is 1989, the year the Berlin wall came down.
Dear Daisy would have been born in 1922 and would probably be dead by now, or alternatively, still alive and kicking in her 90s.
