A family reunion and medieval-style murder? Ever so inconvenient.

Cosily ensconced in his eighteenth-century Cambridgeshire manor, bestselling mystery writer Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk delights in tormenting his four grown children with threats of disinheritance. Then he announces his latest blow – he’s engaged to Violet, a beautiful widow with a dubious past.

Money-driven panic soon sets in among the backstabbing brood when eldest son and appointed heir, Ruthven, turns up dead in the wine cellar. Who will win the inheritance sweepstakes? It’s a house full of suspicion, greed, vengeful malice – and ample motives for murder. Can Detective Chief Inspector St. Just nab the killer before another heir lands in the family burial plot?
