Summary (From the publisher):

Chetton Hall was one of Britain's noblest and stateliest of stately piles. The Spenders had lived in Chetton since 1610, amassing treasures, wealth, and several layers of dignity and pomp. Which made it all the more shocking when Percy Spender of Clapham ascended to the title. There was no denying that the new Earl was 'not quite' and his ghastly family were not at all. When they all descended on Chetton Hall on Percy's sixtieth birthday their main desire was to see just what Percy was going to do with his new-found wealth, and what was in it for them.

But as the jolly house party got under way something most unpleasant occurred. For in the niche by the stairwell, lying beside the famous Bernini marble, a body was discovered. Killed by a karate blow to the neck. And it was fairly obvious that one of the new Earl's family had done it.
