Nick Aaron I'm working on my fourth Daisy Hayes novel. This one will obviously be outside the original trilogy. It should become a stand-alone murder mystery.…moreI'm working on my fourth Daisy Hayes novel. This one will obviously be outside the original trilogy.

Hi Agnieszka, thank you for taking an interest in this series. The chronological order would look like this:
1943: D for Daisy
1946: First Spring in Paris
1952: Honeymoon in Rio
1956: Cockett's Last Cock-up
1964: The Desiderata Stone
1967: Blind Angel of Wrath
1984: The Nightlife of the Blind
1986: Daisy's Pushkin Duel
1989: Daisy and Bernard
1992: The Desiderata Gold
AD 67: The Desiderata Riddle
But things are not so simple. "First Spring in Paris", for example, takes place in 1946, while the story of "D for Daisy" does not end until 1950. On the plus side, each "Blind Sleuth Mystery" is a complete novel and can be read on its own, but I know you're not alone in your urge to read a series "in the right order". Cheers! (Cześć!)(less)

The Desiderata Gold (Millennia Mystery II)

It's a funny thing: as soon as I finish one book (The Desiderata Stone), the next one starts nagging at me. I suppose that is how I've kept writing these past few years, one or two (rather short) novels a year. Who would ever have thought that possible? Not Me!
Another funny thing: I always start on a new book by writing the blurb. Dear reader, when I start I don't know more than you do when you r Read more of this blog post »

Daisy's Pushkin Duel by Nick Aaron
"Great Read! Love the biology!

As a former biology teacher, this book was great. The historic parts were right on target. The personality of the characters historical and fictional made this story believable.

“Without a word, Daisy took off her glasses and revealed the empty buttonholes of her crippled eyes in their full horror. Ralph was taken aback and fascinated at the same time. He started counting to ten in his mind while still peering intently at the ghoulish slits. Even the eyelids were atrophied; there were no eyelashes. After counting to ten, Ralph told himself, “All right, I’m over it now.” Then he reflected that the sight of Daisy’s eyes was disturbing and thrilling at the same time. She looked so naked. It was almost as if she’d taken off her clothes for him. There was something uncannily intimate about this situation.”
Nick Aaron, D for Daisy
