Fethering residents Jude and Carole get more than they bargained for when a meal in their local pub leaves everyone with food poisoning. The landlord is horrified, and when a series of disasters start to befall his business it looks like it could be the end of the road for the Crown and Anchor.
The two amateur detectives wonder if it might just be more than a run of bad luck. When a young man is found in the kitchen with a knife through his heart, Carole and Jude swing into action.
There's a killer on the loose, and our lady sleuths need to uncover who it is before it's last orders for the pub - and themselves.
