With Shakespeare on the stage, there’s danger waiting in the wings for super-sleuth Libby Sarjeant . . .


Libby Sarjeant is proudly hosting an original production of Much Ado About Nothing at the Oast Theatre, which features a daring twist on the classic play. But an old acquaintance of Libby’s – irascible director Constance Matthews – is outraged by the show, stirring strong feelings throughout Steeple Martin.

When a body is subsequently found in the woodlands of a grand estate, the community is shocked by the prospect of murder. But the case is far from straightforward, with dark secrets lurking beneath the surface.


With the help of friends and family, can amateur detective Libby – and her friend Fran – unravel a truly perplexing puzzle?
