Death by Design

What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie?  Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious "mash-up" of two of the greatest English writers of all time.  Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife, Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night.  But various guests arrive unexpectedly -- a conserative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingenue, a zany modern dancer -- each with a long-held secret.  When one of the guests is murdered, it's left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
