The 1923 English countryside is as colorful and calamitous as ever in the newest installment of Carola Dunn's cozy mystery series. In this outing, dauntless Daisy Dalrymple matches wits with a mysterious band of kidnappers in an effort to locate an abducted American heiress before it's too late...

In spring, a young man's fancy turns to love, and it seems the Honourable Phillip Petrie is no exception. Daisy's erstwhile suitor is simply mad for Miss Gloria Arbuckle, daughter of a millionaire Yank. But before the smitten Phillip can pop the question, his beloved is seized by a band of thugs. As a distraught Mr. Arbuckle begins assembling the ransom, Phillip enlists the ever-resourceful Daisy to locate his missing sweetheart. Strictly forbidden to contact Scotland Yard, Daisy must resist the temptation to bring dashing Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher onto the case. But as she closes in on the kidnappers' rural hideaway, Daisy begins to suspect that Gloria isn't the only fair damsel whose life hangs in the balance...
