Publisher's Summary

In early 1925, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher - recent mother of twins - resumes her journalistic career by agreeing to write a piece about the Tower of London - the Bloody Tower - for an American magazine. Invited to observe the centuries-old ritual Ceremony of the Keys, she's spending the night (her first time away from her babies), since the complex is locked and guarded, and the high walls are surrounded by a disused moat.
Having been given a tour of the Crown Jewels, interviewed and observed the Yeoman Warders, and met the Raven Master, Daisy has more than enough material for her article and decides to leave as early as possible the next morning to return to her family. But when walking down the stairs, she almost trips over the dead body of one of the Yeoman Warders. That there's something seriously amiss cannot be denied due to the pike sticking out of his back. With her husband, Scotland Yard DCI Alec Fletcher, assigned to resolve the case, Daisy once again finds herself in the middle of a case of murder most foul.

Another great read/listen

I really enjoy these stories and other than the one in which Daisy went to America (horrible) they have never failed to bring me joy. Daisy is once again the cleverest investigator that wasn't an investigator. Reminds me of a perfect mix of Miss Marple (A. Christie) and Lady Georgiana (R. Bowen)
You won't be disappointed

Better read than listened to!!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Good thing I was driving so it wasn't a complete waste of time.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Voice too high and grating. Accent too heavy with some characters to understand. For light reading, it should not be a chore to listen to!


Any additional comments?

i go back a long way with Ms. Dunn. Have read previous books with enjoyment, but first and last time for audio. What a drag!!
