    schema:description "Daisy Dalrymple is back - as a family outing to the Crystal Palace in London takes a murderous turn ... 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, Nanny Gilpin, has never seen the Palace, Daisy decides to make a day of it with the family. Yet this ordinary outing starts going wrong when Nanny Gilpin goes off to the ladies' room and fails to return. 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. Meanwhile, the rest of Daisy's party spot Nanny Gilpin chasing after yet another nanny. Intrigued, they trail the two into the park and, after briefly losing sight of their quarry, stumble across Mrs Gilpin lying unconscious. When she comes to, she has no recollection of what happened after leaving the twins in the nurserymaid's care. Daisy's husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, soon finds himself embroiled in the murder investigation. Worried about her children's own injured nanny, Daisy is determined to help. But first she has to discover the identity of the third nanny, the presumed murderer, and to do so, Daisy must uncover why Mrs Gilpin followed them in the first place ..."@en ;
