An old-fashioned festival where someone’s idea of fun proves nothing short of deadly.
As their cosy little weekend of fun and frivolity is blown out of the water by a violent murder, Inspector Leslie Dykeman and Sergeant Stanley Shapes find themselves faced with a plethora of possibilities and few obvious suspects amongst a group of friends staying at the upmarket Marlborough Hotel. Except, that is, they’re about to discover that even the best of friends have secrets they prefer to keep hidden and with good reason.
Unhappily for Dykeman, he is also about to find himself facing competition for the attentions of the woman he has belatedly come to realise means more to him than just mere friendship. But how is he to fight his corner when there’s a murder to be solved?
