This comedy parodies every English mystery play ever written but it has a decidedly American flair. Miss Maple, a dowager with a reputation for “clever” weekend parties, invites a group of detective writers to eerie Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island where they are to impersonate their fictional characters. The hostess has arranged all sorts of amusing incidents: a mysterious voice on the radio, a menacing face at the window, a mad killer on the loose. Who is that body in the wine cellar, anyway? Why do little figurines keep toppling form the mantle? Then a real murder takes place, and Miss Maple is outraged. Laughs collide with thrill.
