Synopsis of book»

For fans of the golden age of the English detective story, this is a charming and quirky blend of Agatha Christie, PG Wodehouse and Gosford Park - an affectionate tribute to the classic country-house mysteries of the inter-war years.

It is the 1930s, and a house party is taking place at Alderley, the historic stately home of the Earl and Countess of Burford and their livewire daughter Geraldine. Amongst the guests are a government minister and civil servant engaged in top secret talks with representatives of European powers, a Texan oil millionaire with a taste for guns, his wife - owner of a fabulous diamond necklace, an impoverished woman, an author, a foppish young man and a ravishing Baroness (who is also the Earl`s old flame). And let`s not forget of course, the imperturable butler, Merryweather.

All goes smoothly until during a violent night-time thunderstorm a series of incidents occurs, and when Inspector Wilkens is called in to sort out the goings-on, a body is found in a lake.
