What's the Mystery Here?
Murdoch 'Doc' McNee is the less-than-competent senior partner in a legal practice. Things come to a head whilst his office is being decorated and he has to use the reception area where stroppy staff and difficult clients are bound on various collision courses. These include:
Leonard Saccharine a client waiting to discover the content of his father's will
Vanessa Littleton-Green Legal secretary
Frank Ellis the practice manager
Maggie Heath junior partner in the firm
Murdoch 'Doc' McNee senior partner (and Elvis fan)
Vic Steel Private Investigator and Maggie’s lodger
Marianne Saccharine Leonard’s wife
Beth Latham Leonard’s sister and business partner
The Decorator working in Doc's office
Things come to a head through a mixture of misdeeds, jealousy, greed, blackmail, unexpected encounters and infidelity - but which is the motive for murder?
