As a distraught Mr Arbuckle begins assembling the ransom, Phillip enlists Daisy to help him recover his missing sweetheart.

But as she closes in on the abductors’ rural hideway, she begins to suspect that Gloria isn’t the only fair damsel whose life hangs in the balance…Praise for the Daisy Dalrymple series:'Cunning… appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece.’ Publishers Weekly‘As always, Dunn evokes the life and times of 1920s England while providing a plot that is a cut above the average British cosy.
