Enola Holmes in on the case again! This time her landlady, sweet Mrs. Tupper is missing! Enola comes home one evening to find her lodgings, Mrs. Tupper's house, has been ransacked! The kidnappers have left a message. They didn't find what they were looking for. They have Mrs. Tupper and will harm her if what they are looking for does not materialize. Enola has no idea what they were looking for. So to try to figure it out she puts Mrs. Tupper's house back together again, room by room. This is a painstaking process but Enola learns quite a lot about her landlady.

She learns that Mrs. Tupper's husband died in the Crimean War and the she was there with him. Mrs. Tupper had also met Florence Nightingale! The revered nurse was not only still alive but lived not to far away! After a discussion with Ms. Nightingale Enola is confident that Mrs. Tupper's disappearance is somehow linked to the nurse. But how?

And can Enola keep out of reach of her brothers? If she gets caught she knows she is destined for a boarding school which means horribly constricting corsets!
