The time is the 1930's. Spies and double agents are scattered across the map of Europe from the Balkans to the Sussex countryside. The eccentric, gun-crazy Earl of Burford is as patriotic as the next man even if he doesn't know the crucial negotiations, led by his brother, an important government minister, are going on at Alderley right under his noble nose.

"The Earl of Burford can't believe his luck; Rex Ransom, his favourite star from the 'talkies', and his hot-shot producer, Haggermeir, want to film their next feature at Aldersley, the family's seventeenth-century country estate. Somewhat less enthusiastic is the Countess, who suddenly finds herself hosting an impromptu house party for the incoming Hollywood crowd. And before long the guest list grows to include two of their wilful daughter Lady Geraldine's dubious suitors, a long-lost cousin, a sultry femme fatale, a bespectacled librarian, an eccentric screenwriter, and a professional blackmailer.

"Understandably, Lord Burford had some misgivings about hosting another house party at Alderley, his beautiful country mansion. After all, the previous two could at best be described as disastrous, since a couple of their guests were unceremoniously bumped off during their stay on each occasion. But with family members travelling down for the funeral of an elderly relative, the Earl really had no choice but to offer them accommodation. It didn't take long for things to start to go wrong. One of the guests claimed she had knowledge that would ruin the others' reputations, but luckily nobody took her seriously enough to take offence. At least, that's what they thought up until her body was found... Lord Burford had never been so relieved as when Chief Inspector Wilkins arrived - again."--Global Books in Print
