What's the Mystery Here?
At the monthly meeting of LepreCON – a group for those who celebrate fairies, pixies and other fair folk, the members are shocked to hear that two of their company have finally tracked down a Leprechaun, claimed his pot of gold and will be using their new found wealth to start a new life in the South of Spain. But it soon appears that this incredible source of the cash may not be true! Those involved are:
Judy Andrews The Chair-Fairy obsessed with all things Fairy!
Sharon Cook Occasional member and man-eater!
Nigel Andrews Judy's long suffering husband.
Mavis Benning Doug's wife who in not quite the mild mannered part time librarian she appears!
Doug Benning A council worker with a criminal secret!
Jamie Flint Movie star and tonight's special guest speaker.
Soon recriminations, revelations and dissent throw the meeting into chaos and before the evening is out, someone dies. But who committed the grisly deed?
