The Murderer

The murderer was an hotelier in financial difficulty, trying to obscure the order of children born to a couple in the early C19th so that he can inherit a fortune. He was caught when his clothes made no sense.

The Detective

The detective was Daisy Dalrymple, a minor aristocrat unable to inherit her family’s fortune due to the laws of primogeniture. Married to a leading detective at Scotland Yard, she wears a navy costume – the skirt below the knee, a silk blouse in a blue paisley pattern, and a speedwell-blue cloche hat.
