    “A Beefeater, his wife, and their nearly year-old tortoise live in the Tower of London, and if Stuart’s deadly charming sophomore novel (after The Matchmaker of Périgord) is any indication, the fortress is as full of intrigue as ever the love story is adorable.” —Publisher’s Weekly “[The Tower, The Zoo, and The Tortoise] is grounded by the moving central love story.
