Tucked away in the snowy hillsides of rural England lies the small village of Marsh Mallow. A picturesque scene at the best of times, covered with snow, the village looks just like an image from a Victorian Christmas card.
And with Christmas fast approaching the local elite have made their way to Trimming Mansion, an imposing Edwardian building nestling in the trees at the edge of the village, for their yearly Christmas dinner party.
This year the dinner party is tinged with sadness, as the billionaire bespoke cracker manufacturer Buster Kracker, in whose house they annually met, died in the autumn.
His last wishes were that the annual Christmas dinner party went ahead unhindered and with that in mind, he even ensured that a box of special crackers was put aside for the occasion.
Fulfilling this final request his wife Paula has invited all the guests Buster wished to be present including the local Chief Inspector. Unfortunately it appears the Chief Inspector is not off duty this evening, as he has arrived with terrible news. Buster Kracker did not die of natural causes. He was murdered, and one of the guests here is responsible.
- Paula Kracker - Socialite and wife of the deceased.
Still trying to act as the perfect host despite her recent loss, Paula has an eye for fashion and has picked the most fabulous jewellery to make the most of her “mourning”Ě black number.
