In late 1923 the newly married Daisy Dalrymple and her husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, come to America for a honeymoon visit. In the midst of a pleasure trip, however, both work in a bit of business—Alec travels to Washington, DC, to consult with the US government, Daisy to New York to meet with her American magazine editor. While in New York, Daisy stays at the famed Hotel Chelsea, which is not only close to the Flatiron Building offices of Abroad magazine, where she’ll be meeting with her editor, but home to many of New York’s artists and writers. After her late morning meeting, Daisy agrees to accompany her editor, Mr. Thorwald, to lunch. But as they are leaving the offices, they hear a gunshot and see a man plummeting down an elevator shaft. The man killed was one of her fellow residents at the Hotel Chelsea, Otis Carmody, who was a journalist with no end of enemies—personal and professional—who would delight in his death. Again in the midst of a murder investigation, Daisy’s search for the killer takes her to all levels of society, and even a mad dash across the country itself, as she attempts to solve a puzzle that would baffle even Philo Vance himself.

Is it a farce? A satire? Who cares! It's a whole lot of fun!
The cast of characters allude to many real people and scandals of the time which are somewhat unknown to Daisy as she visits with American publishers, her editor, and a famous former NYC reporter and her (dippy) sister, as well as a NYC DA, a new federal agent sent to "keep an eye on her", a barnstormer, and a whole lot more. The fact that she keeps referring to a couple of them as Rosenkranz and Guildenstern might give a clue! Simply too much fun. As a cozy it is full of twists, misdirection, and red herrings! Loved it!
Even the narrator got caught up in it.
