This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930’s, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight – Bunting, the butler; an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip; a shady French art dealer and his moll; the bumbling local inspector and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes – they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house’s owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet, but will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will readers and audiences die laughing first?
