Stand-up comedy should be fun. But murder tends to sour the mood.
Charlie Sparks’s comedy isn’t Kempston Hardwick’s cup of tea. Not many things are. But when the comedian drops dead during his set, Kempston thinks someone’s taking things a bit far.
Kempston wanted a quiet night out. Ellis Flint wanted an autograph. But Charlie Sparks’s inconvenient death drives them both towards justice — and Fettlesham.
But who would want to murder a washed-up has-been? Why did he propose marriage to a stripper who’s young enough to be his granddaughter? And why does Ellis have so much sugar in his tea?
