The second in the series featuring a madcap pair of amateur sleuths and a delightful outpouring of upper-class English eccentricities – with the odd murder thrown in.
Lady Amanda Golightly, eccentric resident of a sprawling faux castle in the town of Belchester, has recently taken it upon herself to act as a veritable super-sleuth, aided by her friend Hugo Cholmondley-Crichton Crump.
In this Chronicle she faces a family crisis while planning a new business venture for Belchester Towers: guided tours. To celebrate (and road-test) her new venture, Lady Amanda invites a horde of old chums to a trial run at Christmas time, complete with tasty nibbles. However, things don’t go to plan – a dead guest is discovered found slumped on the library table, having been dispatched in a variety of unusual ways!
Lady Amanda and Hugo are off again, but can they beat the morose Inspector Moody to the unmasking of the culprit?
