It is summer in the picturesque village of Castlefield. It is a time for eating ice creams in the shade, summer dresses, turning red as a lobster after five seconds outside, and murder. The only homicidal maniac in the village is supposed to be Pandora the chicken, but she has competition.

l detective, so she can spend time with him. She’ll also have the help of her favourite fictional detective, but will it be enough to catch a killer who enjoys playing games?
