A nanny will go to any length to save a kidnapped Mafia prince in this madcap mobster farce by the bestselling author of the 87th Precinct series. Her name is Nanny, and she s the most cutthroat woman in New York. Prim, slender, and dangerously English, she s responsible for the care of Lewis Ganucci, a spoiled brat whose father just happens to control the city s largest crime syndicate. Working on Mr. Ganucci s sprawling Westchester estate is a dream... until Lewis disappears. Mr. Ganucci is vacationing in Capri, and Nanny sees no reason to inform him that she lost his boy. The kidnappers want $50,000, and if she can scrape it together before the boss gets back, she has a shot at staying alive. She recruits a mid-level enforcer, Benny Napkins, to help her get the cash and save the boss's son, kicking off a chain of events so outrageous and delightful that Nanny will die laughing if she doesn t get whacked first.
