Publisher's Summary

In late 1923, the newly married Daisy Dalrymple and her husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, come to America for a honeymoon visit. In the midst of a pleasure trip, however, both work in a bit of business - Alec travels to Washington, DC, to consult with the US government, Daisy to New York to meet with her American magazine editor.
While in New York, Daisy stays at the famed Hotel Chelsea, which is not only close to the Flatiron Building offices of Abroad magazine, where she'll be meeting with her editor, but home to many of New York's artists and writers.
After her late-morning meeting, Daisy agrees to accompany her editor, Mr. Thorwald, to lunch. But as they are leaving the offices, they hear a gunshot and see a man plummeting down an elevator shaft. The man killed was one of her fellow residents at the Hotel Chelsea, Otis Carmody, who was a journalist with no end of enemies - personal and professional - who would delight in his death. Again in the midst of a murder investigation, Daisy's search for the killer takes her to all levels of society - and even on a mad dash across the country - as she attempts to solve a puzzle that would baffle even Philo Vance himself.

Too, too tiresome

The arrogant, stupid, bad tempered America cops where bad enough, but the high pitch whiny voices that only bats could hear made me want to scream.
I’ve never listened to a book which this many shallow characters.

Meh....

This book was O.K. It never really caught my attention, Daisy has become annoying again and Alec, her Husband, just laps it up like her obedient hound. I'll probably get the next one, I might as well continue since I'm about 1/2 through the series. I just hope the next one up in the series is better.

Excellent!

Very good performance by narrator. I'm glad I found this series. I really enjoy the stories and the social history.

Awful

Any additional comments?

This has to be the worst Daisy Dalrymple book it has been my misfortune to listen to, or even read. If I said it was boring it would be an understatement. Shame really most of her other books I have enjoyed, although the one before this one was not as good as it might have been.
