It has been ten years since the Kentish town of Crumbdale twinned with Bouziville in France and the residents of Crumbdale have commissioned a commemorative plaque to mark the anniversary. A delegation from France has just arrived and many people are looking forward to renewing friendships with their 'twins'. The VIPs include
Chairman of the Crumbdale twinning committee, Adam McAdam a ruthless property developer
His aristocratic wife, Lady Caroline
Imogen Trollope Adam’s personal assistant
The Honourable Duncan Crumbdale Lady Caroline's son
Adam's former business partner, Harry Hawkins
Geraldine Greenfinger librarian and radical environmentalist
The chief planning officer of Crumbdale Council Barry Blenkinsop
The mayor of Bouziville, Franck LeBanque
Elise LeBanque the mayor's wife
There are some serious undercurrents beneath the surface of the celebration, and the grudges and rivalries lead someone to murder. But whodunnit? Detective Inspector Hagley and Constable Racey investigate.
