Narrator Lucy Rayner takes listeners to London and a tour of the Crystal Palace that goes horribly wrong when Daisy Fletcher, née Dalrymple, discovers a dead nanny in the ladies' room. Rayner immerses listeners in the 1928 atmosphere, which includes discussions of women's suffrage and changing educational standards. Rayner deftly moves among the accents of the story's many characters, including Scottish Detective Inspector McKinnon; Daisy's Indian friend, Sakari Prasad; various Russian émigré suspects; and British people of various classes. The one questionable choice is the English accents given to newly arrived Ben and Charlie, who hail from Trinidad. Despite this minor detail, Rayner's performance gives the listener a fun sense of being in London. V.M.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
