Sir Ecgbert Tode of Tode Hall has survived to a grand old age- much to the horror of his wife, Lady Emma - but at 93 years old he finally takes his leave of the building for the last time. Lady Emma, tired of being the dutiful Lady of the House, wants to leave the country to spen...d her remaining years in Capri. Her three children who she loves dearly (not really) are unable (either too mad, too lefty or entirely unwilling to leave their young wife in Australia) to take on the mantle of managing the house so it passes to a distant relative and his glamorous wife. Not long after the new owners take over, Lady Emma is found dead in the mausoleum. Accident? Or is there much more going on behind the scenes of Tode Hall than an outsider would ever guess....? Satirizing the aristocracy as only Daisy Waugh can, this glorious country house murder mystery iscomplete with stiff upper lips, even stiffer drinks and a few stiffs to be merrily brushed under the ancestral carpet!
