In April of 1925, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, now mother of two-month-old twins, has decided to resume her journalistic career, and for her first piece she's agreed to write about the Tower of London - the royal fortress and compound of buildings that includes the infamous Bloody Tower. Daisy is not only given a tour of the Crown Jewels, she interviews and observes the Yeoman Warders, and meets the Raven Master, in charge of the Tower's legendary ravens. But most important, she's been invited to observe the centuries-old Ceremony of the Keys ritual. Because the complex is locked and guarded during the ceremony, Daisy will have to spend the night - her first away from her babies - at the Tower.<BR>Early the next morning, eager to get home, Daisy decides to slip out before her hosts awaken. But when walking down the stairs, she almost trips over the dead body of a yeoman warder. That there's something amiss with his death is obvious to all - due to the halberd sticking out of his back. With her husband, Scotland Yard Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher, assigned to investigate the death, Daisy once again finds herself enmeshed in a puzzling case of murder most foul. - (Blackwell North Amer)

<DIV><DIV>In early 1925, the Honourable 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.

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.</DIV></DIV> - (McMillan Palgrave)
