"A casual outing to the Crystal Palace in London takes a mysterious and murderous turn in the latest mystery in Carola Dunn's beloved Daisy Dalrymple series. April 1928: Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is visited in London by her young cousins. 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--bringing her cousins, her 3-year-old twins, her step-daughter Belinda, the nurserymaid, and Nanny Gilpin. Yet this ordinary outing goes wrong when Mrs. Gilpin goes off to the ladies' room and fails to return. When Daisy goes to look for her, she doesn't find her nanny but instead the body of another woman dressed in a nanny's uniform. Meanwhile, Belinda and the cousins spot Mrs. Gilpin chasing after yet another nanny. Intrigued, they trail the two through the vast Crystal Palace and into the park. After briefly losing sight of their quarry, they stumble across Mrs. Gilpin lying unconscious in a small lake inhabited by huge concrete dinosaurs. When she comes to, Mrs. Gilpin can't remember what happened after leaving the twins in the nurserymaid's care. Daisy's husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, finds himself embroiled in the investigation of the murdered nanny. Worried about her children's own injured nanny, Daisy is determined to help. First she has to discover the identity of the third nanny, the presumed murderer, and to do so, Daisy must uncover why the amnesic Mrs. Gilpin deserted her charges to follow the missing third nanny"--… (mais)

Daisy takes Nanny Gilpin, the twins, Belinda & two cousins to the Crystal Palace...

While Nanny Gilpin is leaving the "Ladies Convenience" (the first ever public loo for women) she notices another Nanny leaving her pram & walking off in the other direction. Nanny Gilpin quickly goes after her, which leads to a chase... with the children tagging behind. The kids find Nanny Gilpin face down in the fountain & pull her out.

Wondering what is taking Nanny Gilpin so long in the loo, Daisy goes to the Ladies Convenience looking for Nanny Gilpin and instead finds another Nanny, who looks quite familiar, dead in a stall.

It turns out that the dead nanny is Lucy's disreputable & much-widely loathed cousin, who never ceased to harm or play malicious practical jokes.

Meanwhile, upon investigating Lucy's Cousin, daisy & Alec are led to a family of Russian jewelers who seem to be hiding a secret.

Interesting history about the Crystal Palace and its offerings. ( )

The Corpse at the Crystal Palace neither disappointed nor thrilled me. it was an easy read, but not as good as some of the previous books, because there weren't as many interesting supporting characters this time around. The mystery wasn't particularly enthralling, and neither the victim nor any of the suspects were people we'd known before. I was entertained throughout and don't regret the time I spent reading it, but I would never recommend it to anyone who wasn't already a fan of the series. ( )

Very enjoyable mystery from Carola Dunn in the Daisy Dalrymple series. I liked this one a lot because it focused on Daisy's family life but also because it gave the flavor of upper middle-class family life in the 20's and 30's. This story was told in terms of the facts of the murder unfolding slowly. The murderer doesn't really turn up, as other than a hardly glimpsed figure, until the end of the book. It looks like Alec Fletcher is going to be promoted to Superintendent. It made me wonder if Dunn is going to continue the series. ( )

This series is still going strong after 23 titles. In 1927, Daisy takes her children, her visiting cousins, and some family friends on on outing to the Crystal Palace. When the older children see the little one's nurse pursuing someone through the gardens, they follow, arriving just in time to pull Nurse Gilpin from a pond where she is drowning. A young man in a nurse's costume is then found dead in the ladies' convenience. Although Scotland Yard is called in, Daisy naturally can't leave it there. Her contacts in high society come in handy in solving a very puzzling crime.

Recommended. ( )
