The elderly Marjorie has invited friends and colleagues to celebrate the publication of 'Gin and Daggers', her latest novel, the crowning glory of her distinguished career. A career which comes to a dramatic end when, in the dead of night, someone slips into Marjorie's bedroom and plunges a long, lethal dagger into her heart.
