What's the Mystery Here?
A village community events committee has gathered for a meal to say goodbye to one of their members. Assemble, sipping wine after the meal, are:-
Hilary who will soon be moving away.
Philip the regular chairman of the group.
James who fancies Hilary, but would rather die than admit it.
The easygoing Sarah who's known to enjoy a tipple.
Poppy generally regarded as non-too-bright.
Ray who enjoys a joke, often at others' expense.
Under the surface of the friendly and close-knit group, all is not as it seems. Someone has a murderous plan to dispose of the one person present who threatens to put an end to a rather pleasant lifestyle.
