Soon after arriving at the draughty old manor house where her childhood best friend, Daisy, is convalescing, Amelia Ferver discovers the scarred body of an acclaimed British actor…in a locked room.
Amelia has returned to London after learning that her late Uncle Sebastian, suspected he had been murdered. But while she is there, she receives a hysterical telephone call from her childhood friend Daisy, whose peaceful convalescence at an old Sussex manor house has been disturbed…by Amelia’s harridan of a mother, Maud.
Amelia races down to the countryside determined to rescue her friend, only to find that Maud has invited a whole ensemble cast of actors to the house, in a transparent attempt to persuade Daisy to accept the leading role in her new play. But soon after she arrives, Amelia finds Daisy’s new beau dead in a locked bedroom, with his throat slashed.
The police rule the death a suicide, but a devastated Daisy won’t believe it, and a mysterious scar, an engraved lighter, and a pile of cobwebs prompt Amelia to investigate. But when another guest goes missing, before they too turn up murdered, Amelia wonders if she is in over her head.
