It was planned as an act of charity: a new piano for the parish hall, an amusing play to finance the gift. But its extension was doomed when Miss Campanula sat down to play. A chord was struck, a shot rang out and Miss was dead. A case of sinister infatuation for the brilliant Inspector Alleyn.
Who in the quiet village of Chipping would kill wealthy spinster Idris Campanula? Plenty of people, among them her fellow cast members from a troubled charity production. Miss Campanula was a spiteful gossip, gleefully destroying others' lives merely for her own excitement. But once Inspector Roderick Alleyn arrives, he quickly realizes that the murderer might have killed the wrong woman -- and may soon stage a repeat performance.
