Publisher's Summary

In late 1926, the newly married Daisy Dalrymple and Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard take an ocean voyage to America for their honeymoon. Daisy and Alec are accompanied by Daisy's childhood friend, Phillip Petrie; his wife, Gloria; and Gloria's father, American millionaire industrialist Caleb P. Arbuckle, and all are looking forward to a pleasant, uneventful trip.
But at the last minute they are joined by Arbuckle's new friend, Yorkshire millionaire Jethro Gotobed, and his new wife, Wanda - a showgirl whom all but Gotobed are convinced is a gold digger of the worst sort. Then, having barely lifted anchor, the ocean liner is beset by a series of suspicious accidents and deaths. With harsh weather and rough seas putting many out of commission due to seasickness - including Alec - it soon falls to Daisy to figure out what connection there might be between the seemingly unrelated incidents. Convinced that there's a murderer aboard ship, Daisy must unmask the culprit or culprits before she or anyone else falls victim.

Story Satisfying; Narrator Not

I enjoy the Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, but I needed to force myself to finish this performance. The narrator uses painfully high pitches for some of the female characters and artificially lowered pitches for male characters. The reason I gave as many as two stars to the performance is that Rayner paces her reading well and articulates clearly. However, I will avoid any book she narrates in the future.

Interesting story . .. poor performance

What did you like best about To Davy Jones Below? What did you like least?

Storyline interesting but the narrator made listening a struggle!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda! The plot was there and kept me intrigued, but only sufficiently to make me listen just to find out the answers. The interpretation of various characters voices and personalities kept grating on my nerves, making me wish I had bought or borrowed the actual book to read so I didn't have to listen to what the narrator thought the voices and personalities should be.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Ruined the book for me. I kept getting so irritated with her that I would have to put the book down and listen to a different one until I had calmed down enough to carry on.

Did To Davy Jones Below inspire you to do anything?

Yes . . . to keep more than one Audible book at a time downloaded on my phone so that I could switch to a more pleasantly narrated one when the narrator's voices got to be just too irritating.
