Though Lord Altringham died as a result of having been stabbed in the heart, his kith and kin cannot but agree that, in this particular case, his death must be ascribed to natural causes. After all, it was only natural to wish to kill the old aristocrat who kept dangling the promise of an inheritance before the noses of his money-hungry family…But bureaucracy demands that the name of the murderer be written on the death certificate and Inspector Gaspard G. Ganimard is contractually obliged by the necessities of the plot to unmask the culprit. Could it have been Georgiana, the lord’s young and beautiful wife, who just happens to have a track record of five hunting ‘accidents’ resulting in five dead husbands and no foxes of which to speak? Or perhaps it was his son, Gerard, whose notorious gambling problem required more money for gambling, as that would fix it all. Or what about Gerard’s fiancée, Melissa? After all, Lord Altringham objected to her marriage to his son almost as much as did Gerard. Could it have been the lord’s nephew, the Hon. Reverend Mason, whose only wish is to reconnect with the Mothership? Or perhaps it was the butler? Has to be the butler, right?
