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.

Dunn and Rayner make best combo in 20's who dunnit

Welcome back Lucy! For me Lucy Rayner is the heart and soul of the Daisy Dalrymple series. I love these lighter form of murder mysteries, all the mystery without sinister over tones or blood, guts, gore, sex or foul language. But always a little sad when the journey is over and I wait alone until next time!

Get the pronunciations correct!

At least Lucy Rayner gets the accents correct but one would think she could pronounce names correctly. Devereux is pronounced Deverow not Deverex! There were also other mispronunciations - oh for Stephen Fry!!!
