The Corpse at the Crystal Palace
Historischer Krimi von Carola Dunn
April 1928: Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is being visited in London by her young cousins who are desperate to see the Crystal Palace. On discovering that her children’s nanny, Gilpin, has also never seen the palace, Daisy decides to make a day of it with the family. But this ordinary outing starts going wrong when Nanny Gilpin fails to return from the ladies‘ room. When Daisy goes looking for her, she doesn’t find her nanny but instead the dead body of another woman dressed in a nanny’s uniform.
Carola Dunn lebt schon lange in den USA, aber ihre amüsanten Krimis sind sehr britisch. “This has red herrings, and is a good solid mystery, as the police and Daisy have to work their way through a number of suspects, finding a Russian family, meeting a night club performer, and talking to aristocrats. But who killed the nanny, and who were they really?” (Leserin) (45 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 288 Seiten noch günstig?
