This murder mystery-comedy takes place in the exclusive (fictional) Orczy Club, an “inner sanctum” for women mystery writers in London. Most of them hate the arrogant Octavia Sturges, the most successful mystery writer of the day, so it is no surprise when she is found dead—poisoned by one of the poisons she was so fond of using in her stories. But what happens now? Should these specialists in murder try to solve the case themselves—at the risk of their own lives, since obviously the murderer is one of them—or should they call Scotland Yard? “How would it look if a roomful of mystery writers had to go to the police to solve a murder that took place under their very noses?” one of the characters in this play asks. The group decides to solve the murder themselves. Those present are the owner of the club, (a “big name” herself some years ago), two other writers, a critic, a journalist, a visitor from America who has just had her first mystery novel published, the cook (whose food Sturges hates), and Sturges’ long-suffering secretary. It is no surprise when Sturges turns up murdered. Each of the remaining eight have an untold secret which causes suspicion to rise and there are many other surprises in this intriguing mystery play filled with humor, suspense, and fun for the audience in trying to guess “whodunit?”
