Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
April 1928. Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is visited in London by her young cousins, and on the list of must-see sites is the Crystal Palace. Discovering that her children's nanny, Nanny Gilpin, has never seen the Palace, Daisy decides to make a day of it. When Mrs. Gilpin goes off to the ladies' room and fails to return, Daisy finds the body of another woman dressed in a nanny's uniform. Meanwhile the cousins spot Mrs. Gilpin chasing after yet another nanny, and follow her into the park to find Mrs. Gilpin lying unconscious in a small lake. Daisy's husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, finds himself embroiled in the investigation of the murdered nanny, and Daisy is determined to help.
