Synopsis: A secret chamber. A dead body. And one ghost who won’t tell the truth!

The Master’s assistant has been murdered, and although Nat figures out who is responsible, finding the evidence is a challenge. Especially when the one ghost who witnessed the crime refuses to say what happened.

The closer Nat comes to finding the proof she needs, the more tempers flare and threats fly. The situation becomes a race against time, and just when she thinks she’s won, Nat realizes the murderer is willing to do whatever it takes to escape justice, including getting Nat out of the way.


Nat’s miscalculation will cost someone their life, but whose?

If you like cozy mysteries where ghosts walk the halls, paintings come to life, wyverns play around, and magic seems within reach, the Oxford Key Mysteries are sure to delight.

My Review

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lynn Morrison. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

This is the second book in the Oxford Key Mysteries, and I liked it even better than the first book, Murder at St. Margaret. It’s full of magic and is a fun read. There’s a lot going on and it not only kept my interest, but it was difficult to stop listening at times.

I enjoyed getting to know the characters more. Nat gets to meet some interesting ghosts as well (I don’t want to spoil it). I still really like “H” who is with Nat all the time.

Pearl Hewitt does a great job with narration. Her pace and timing are good, and she’s able to make each character sound distinct.

I look forward to listening to more of the Oxford Key Mysteries. They’re so much fun to listen to!

It was then that her professional career blossomed.
