Now, 1923 New York, with its speakeasies and sharp wits, comes to vibrant life, as dauntless sleuth Daisy Dalrymple discovers that a guest at her honeymoon hotel has checked out...permanently.

The Honorable Daisy Dalrymple, now Mrs. Daisy Fletcher, is happy to spend a few days of her honeymoon alone in New York, while her new husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alex Fletcher, consults with J. Edgar Hoover in Washington, D.C. At the Chelsea Hotel, Daisy can work on her stories for Abroad magazine, and mingle with some of the city's more eccentric inhabitants. But Daisy's plans for a peaceful sojourn are scrapped when a fellow guest plummets to his death down an elevator shaft. Otis Carmody was a disreputable journalist with no end of enemies--personal and professional--capable of murder. With the aid of some new friends, a bumbling federal agent--and of course, her dashing spouse--Daisy must track a killer...and embark on a perilous cross-country trek that could bring her honeymoon to a decidedly sour end...
