Fishing for Clues by Geoff Bamber

Run TimeAround 120 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleFull-length, wryly comic whodunnit. Single country house set. Contains mild swearing and hanky-panky.
SynopsisWhen Lady Rosemary Huntley brings a new gentleman friend home on the evening of a talk given by prominent Member of Parliament, Ewart Stewart, little does she imagine that the gentleman friend is not long for this world and that the Foreign Office and some offshoot of the KGB will soon be in attendance, along with the ever-enthusiastic PC Pendlebury and the less than enthusiastic Inspector Trench, unimpressed by having his fishing holiday interrupted. Trench is determined to get back to the river bank as soon as possible despite finding himself having to sort through a diverse cast of characters all of whom had motives for committing the deadly deed.
