Toucan keep a secret, if one of them is dead. Meg Langslow is at Trinity Episcopal locking up after an event and checking on the toucan that Reverend Robyn Smith is fostering in her office. After hearing a hammering in the crypt, Meg finds an elderly parishioner lying dead on the floor. Several niches have been chiseled open, several urns knocked out, and amid the spilled ashes is a gold ring with a huge red stone. The curmudgeonly victim had become disgruntled with the church and ranted all over town about taking back his wife’s ashes. Did someone who had it in for him follow him? Or was the motive grave robbery? Or did he see someone breaking in and investigate? Why was the ruby left behind? While Chief Burke investigates the murder, Robyn recruits Meg to contact the families of the people whose ashes were disturbed. During this task, Meg discovers clues that indicate that a thief broke into the church to steal the toucan the night of the murder, so Meg decides to set a trap for the would-be toucan thief—who might also be the killer.

Meg Langslow is at Trinity Episcopal locking up after an event and checking on the toucan that Reverend Robyn Smith is fostering in her office.

Several niches have been chiseled open, several urns knocked out, and amid the spilled ashes is a gold ring with a huge red stone.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Bernadette Dunne demonstrates her wide range of voice skills in performing the role of Meg, the main character in the Meg Langslow series. Dunne effectively conveys the fear Meg experiences when she sees a light in a church crypt and finds a murdered man…Soon the listener catches the contagious enthusiasm of Meg’s father as he investigates a thirty-year-old robbery/homicide case…Dunne uses believable voices that convey the nature of the quirky characters Andrews has created—for example, Meg’s micromanaging mother and the efficient but gruff police chief. The energy and joy Dunne brings to this audiobook make it a special listen. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Even if some readers might guess the perpetrator, they will surely enjoy a re-enactment of the robbery with earnest actors and ingenious substitutes for firearms. This long-running cozy series shows no signs of losing its freshness.” Publishers Weekly
