A friend's invitation to the London Tower leads to Daisy's research for a series of articles about the tourist attraction. She returns to watch the Key Ceremony on a foggy night and remains overnight since the ceremony means that the doors to the tower are all locked. The next morning, Daisy awakens early and decides to head home to see the twins. However, she instead finds a body at the bottom of the stairs.

Of course, Alec is assigned the case and begins investigating the death leading to Daisy's further involvement. Was the man killed the intended victim? What other secrets are the residents hiding? As Alec, with his trusty team of Tring and Piper, delve the mystery, they uncover indiscretions and possible blackmail that could lead to more deaths before they can solve the mystery.… (mere)

Megan and Nick rescue a drowning man who mentions that his family is trapped in a cave and that his mother is dying. He then loses consciousness and so is unable to help them narrow down the location to start searching. So they must figure out on their own where the family is likely to be found.

The book deals with the challenges that refugees face and their exploitation by people smugglers.

Since I was listening to this as an audiobook, I think I missed the part where it is explained why the people who originally arranged for the family to be brought to Cornwall didn't know where they were and didn't get them out.

I didn't like this as much as the previous two books.... but that may be because I was listening rather than reading and so might have missed some bits.

I didn't like this book as much as the earlier books in the series. Daisy is in New York and the bits contrasting American and British English was fun. However, the whole train chase and cross-country airplane chase was a bit too much! But still a fun read.
