When Becky Hagswater, an American tour guide in the upper highlands of Scotland, has her bus break down in front of spooky old Heelancoopoo Manor (ancestral home to the Peasantjabber family), strange things begin to happen. Becky and the American tourists soon learn that they have arrived on the eve of the Peasantjabber Curse: the one night of the year when all Peasantjabbers go mad. And then the first murder strikes. With a bumbling investigator bungling the case, a budding, forbidden romance in the air, and buried secrets comically clawing their way free, this farcical take on the murder mystery genre shines through its wildly inventive characters and Monty Python-esque flair.
