The summer of '42. A stormy night. In the drawing room, a corpse and six guests. Nick Lambent, the tap dancing detective, arrives. Who dunnit? Nobody leaves the room until the case is cracked. Will Nick's incredible crime-solving feet flush out the lies, leaky alibis and hidden identities or will our hero try to solve this one with his head like a regular flatfoot? Twists, turns, surprises, a little love and a lot of lunacy fill every scene.
