Show synopsis A Lady Amanda Golightly Murder Mystery From the author of The Falconer Files - a new series featuring an outrageously ill-assorted pair of amateur sleuths. An outpouring of English upper class eccentricities with the odd murder thrown in. Lady Amanda Golightly of Belchester Towers was not a horsey sort of country-woman. Neither was she tall, slender, or young. She was in complete contrast to the stereotypical idea of one of her breeding, being short, portly, and embarrassingly forthright. If she didn't call a spade a shovel, it was only because she was calling it 'trumps'! On a visit to a local nursing home, where she has heard that an old business partner of her father's is residing, she discovers, not just a long-lost friend, Hugo Cholmondley-Crichton-Crump, but stumbles upon murder, as well. After tunnelling her way through the necessary paperwork to 'spring' Hugo, she installs him in the more civilised surroundings of Belchester Towers, where he can lead a more dignified and comfortable life. Between doctor's and hospital appointments, the pair turn to sleuthing, after Lady Amanda reports her appalling discovery to the local police inspector, and is incensed when he treats her as a silly old biddy with an over-active imagination. Her outrage prompts her to teach this impertinent young whipper-snapper a lesson, and she and Hugo (Zimmer frame in tow) embark upon their first investigation, only for murder to become a distressingly frequent occurrence, and the person they are pursuing, eventually threatens their own lives!
