Everyone's a suspect when murder is on the menu. And with a Classic Detective Murder Mystery you have everything you need to serve up a perfect murder dinner party.First the invites, you choose which of your friends play which devious character. Then the shopping list, menu suggestions and recipes. Plus of course .....a really tasty murder to solve. We guarentee that it will be drop dead fun, and by the end of the evening one (or more) of the suspects, your 'friends' will be caught out as the murderer.

Painton Place is an 18th-Century house built by Sir John Painton, the first baronet, in Rutting-on-the-Rise, a beautiful if isolated corner of Norfolk. It's just the place to spend a couple of days on a cooking holiday - a weekend mini-bake, as it's advertised. But the rural tranquility is shattered when celebrity chef Francis 'Franny' Craddock is found dead late on Saturday night. Particularly when it turns out that he's been murdered.

Suspicion falls on the guests. But who would have wanted to kill him? And what does this have to do with the legendary Painton Plunder, supposedly brought back from India by the eccentric fourth baronet, Sir Richard Painton?

The anticipation, mystery and excitement begin before guests have even arrived as each of the guests, or suspects, will receive their invite and suggestions for suitable dress. This all starts to set the scene for the forthcoming crime - and by the end of the evening, one or more of the guests will be exposed as a killer!

The Suspects are:

THERESA PAINTON - the only child of the last baronet, she is returning to the house where she grew up.
LIZZY LIGHTWATER - a fearless equestrian, a point-to-point rider and the first woman to be Master of the Cerberus Foxhounds.
FIZZY CRUICKSHANK - Theresa's childhood friend, now a succesful and popular historian.
JUDY DRENCH - a librarian from Birmingham who won this weekend break in a magazine competition.
PAUL BABYLON - the restaurateur who bought Painton Place last year and is your host for this weekend.
BORIS JEFFERSON - Theresa's fiancé who works for an investment bank in London.
REV PIERS SHORTHOSE - a vicar from Yorkshire with a passionate interest in baking.
