An ordinary village a shocking announcement
One morning the villagers of Chipping Cleghorn wake to find a strange notice in their papers: A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30pm.
Suspecting this is just a joke they gather for some evening entertainment.
Then a gunshot is heard.
In desperation, the police turn to an old lady whose hobbies are gardening, gossiping – and solving murders.
After all, old ladies know better than anyone exactly what goes on in quiet English villages.
