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 the sprawling Belchester Towers, has a new venture: guided tours. To celebrate she invites a horde of old chums to a trial run at Christmas, complete with tasty nibbles. However, things don't go to plan - a dead guest is discovered found slumped on the library table. Lady Amanda and her friend Hugo Cholmondley-Crichton Crump are off again, but can they beat the morose Inspector Moody to the unmasking of the culprit?
