In the quiet town of Christie's Leigh, right next to the historic local church, sits Belladonna Manor. Having sat empty for years, Belladonna Manor is a mystery to the residents of Christie's Leigh. Prickly, high garden walls keep prying eyes from learning its secrets - and Belladonna Manor has plenty of secrets!
Suddenly, select residents of the town of Christie's Leigh and those beyond receive invitations to a garden party at Belladonna Manor. No one knows why they have been invited, but the chance to step within the walls of the garden at Belladonna Manor is too enticing to resist.
But when the local vicar, Vicar Demming, falls down dead during the garden party, the guests are faced with a wicked "murder game", through which they must discover the identity of their mysterious host, and the reasons why this host felt the vicar needed to die. Which of the guests is the killer? How did Vicar Demming die? Will the guests escape with their own terrible secrets kept hidden?
