Daisy goes to visit the estate of a school friend to cover their special Guy Fawkes celebration, complete with a bonfire and guy and a big fireworks show. But when she gets there, not all is well with the family.
Then Jack, her friend's brother, makes the mistake of inviting an Australian couple they meet at a pub to their home for their large Guy Fawkes party, upsetting his parents, social snobs. But is that the only reason they are unhappy? As the fireworks show concludes, Jack finds his father and Mrs. Gooch dead, apparently with Lord Tyndall's having murdered the lady before committing suicide, causing Alec, her Scotland Yard Detective Chief Inspector husband, to come to the case, when he learns an explosive secret within the family.
The solution to this book was well-written and a surprise ending.
I was a bit disappointed by the narration, as Lucy Rayner can't do a credible Australian accent and mispronounced several words. But I'm so thrilled to be able to listen to this book that I don't mind!
This was an excellent book that I listened to straight through from start to finish because I couldn't put it down!

Daisy is always astute. And somehow she never is in the shadow of her husband when it comes to finding out ‘who dunnit’ . This book has a complicated but understandable weaving of possible villains. Much fun. Well narrated.
