Eric Chappell’s comedy ‘whodunit’
Walter Bryce lives in a Georgian country house with a lovely garden and a trout stream. Vincent is from Exodus, a euthanasia group that assists people in suicide. When he is invited to Walter’s house to assist in the disposal of Walter’s wife, Celia, he senses something is wrong. Why are the suicide notes unsigned? What is the role of Walter’s attractive secretary? Why has the Samaritan been sent for? Will any of them die, willingly or unwillingly, from natural causes?
