Indian princess Alexandrina, a.k.a. Mink, found herself penniless after the death of her father, the Maharaja, but she’s living the good life at Hampton Court Palace as Queen Victoria’s guest. So what if the house is haunted? Mink’s making plenty of corporeal friends, such as the three titled widows who invite her to a most splendid picnic, where she meets Major-General George Bagshot. Pooki, Mink’s maid, has whipped up a delectable pigeon pie for the occasion...but soon after the Major-General polishes off his heaping portion, he topples over—dead.
When an autopsy turns up arsenic in Bagshot’s body, Pooki becomes the prime suspect. But the princess stands by her loyal maid and dons her sleuthing tiara to hunt for the real killer.
