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.

    "Daisy is back!"

    I was a little leery about this book because the last in the series was average at best. I found myself quite disappointed because I have grown to know and love these characters. It was like all of us were going to meet at a party, full of expectation and everybody brought Jewel taco dip....Well don't worry because Daisy is back. I bought into the cast of characters right away and found I loved them, despised them, chortled at the mass chaos our Daisy creates so well. Get this one book. You'll enjoy every minute of it.

    "Good Story but Awful Narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the first few books in this series and then read Rattle His Bones on Kindle.
    I bought this one on Audible and was sorry to find out that the narrator had changed. The voices of many of the characters are so shrill that I just want to cringe. She also changes the sound volume a great deal, almost whispering some times and then shrieking. It really made it very difficult to listen to this book. I'm going back to Kindle for the rest of the series.

    "Best book yet!"

    I almost gave up on these books, but this one was somehow extremely thrilling in comparison to the others. Several different plots at once helped and great characters made this exciting!

    "Shrill"

    The person who narrirated this book was so shrill it made my ears ache. She also made Daisy sound like as though s h e was a simpleton.

    "Need a different narrator."

    Narrator's interpretation of the voices is disappointing. Especially the high squeaky voice of the main character.

    "solid story lightly executed"

    entertaining story with attractive characters. satisfying plot, not particularly sophisticated or complex but enough to keep interest. read well with nice characterisation for audio...some accents a bit ropey, but didn't interfere with pleasure of listening. Daisy Dalrymple a pleasant series , period feel well enough delineated to make.me.curious for more.
