    Balthazar Jones has lived in the Tower of London with his loving wife, Hebe, and his 120-year-old pet tortoise for the past eight years. That’s right, he is a Beefeater (they really do live there). It’s no easy job living and working in the tourist attraction in present-day London.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Julia Stuart and/or Jonathan Cowley?

    Not sure.


    What was most disappointing about Julia Stuart’s story?

    I LOVED Stuart's Pigeon Pie Mystery and this one was described as a modern story but with period flavor. Not true. The narrator gives a dull, monotone recitation and the story holds no charm.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jonathan Cowley?

    Not sure but another might be able to lift up the story.
