Welcome to Alderley, a magnificent English mansion in the heart of the West Country where a grand house party is taking place. The preparations have all been made, the guests have been invited, and the staff are on hand to tend to the merest whim of the noble host and hostess. What could possibly go wrong? Let the entertainment begin...The theft of the diamond necklace and the antique pistols might all be explained, but the body in the lake - that really was a puzzle. 'Don't expect me to solve anything,' Inspector Wilkens announced modestly when he arrived to sort out the unpleasantness. And at a gathering that included English aristocracy, foreign agents in disguise, a ravishing baroness, a daring jewel thief, a Texas millionaire and, of course, the imperturbable butler, it was going to take some intricate sleuthing to uncover who killed whom and why. A delightfully quirky murder mystery, "The Affair of the Bloodstained Egg Cosy" will be a delectable feast for all whodunit fans.
