The Murder Mystery Weekend at the Fleetwood Arms Hotel is thrown into chaos when one of the guests is murdered. The first thing DI Steve Winwood discovers is that many of the guests are members of the Rutherford Operatic And Dramatic Society (ROADS) and they all have solid alibis for the time of death. Martin Protheroe the dead man, a TV series location manager has been invited to stay by the hotel group and had no connection to ROADS. That is until Detective Constable Emma Porter uncovers the fact that Protheroe and Brian Stirling a member of ROADS had switched rooms and maybe Protheroe was not the intended victim. Further investigations reveal that the amateur actors are middle aged swingers who have used this and similar weekend events to indulge their sexual fantasies. In covering up this fact their alibis are found to be flawed owing to their habit of switching rooms in the course of the early hours. Emma goes undercover and successfully auditions for the chorus of ROADS’ upcoming production of South Pacific. She attends the Fleetwood Arms Hotel’s Treasure Island themed weekend as the guest of Brian Stirling and finds herself sat on the same table where another actor suffers a fatal shock. Winwood continues to dig deeper into the lives and loves of ROADS and of Martin Protheroe. In a classic Agatha Christie style dénouement he gathers all the cast back at the Fleetwood Arms Hotel to solve both murders.
