The village of Sodbury End has been run efficiently and firmly by one Jennifer Jardine. Until, that is, Mrs Jardine is blown sky-high in her allotment shed while potting up a monkey-puzzle tree.
When Detective Inspector Grace Murray arrives to investigate the death, all the villagers are quick to assert their admiration for the deceased. But – what dark secrets lie buried in this parochial plot? And most pertinently, who had the greatest cause and know-how to murder Mrs Jardine?
You must decide at Redlynch Players’ Evening of Mishaps, Mayhem and Murder at Redlynch Village Hall from 23 to 26 May. Tickets (£12 including a light supper) from 01725 5120283.
