The Butler Did It

5 Male, 5 Female

Tim Kelly Price: $9.95

This Samuel French Inc best seller parodies every English mystery play ever written, but it has a decidedly American flair ...

Miss Maple, a dowager with a reputation for "clever" weekend parties, invites a group of detective writers to eerie Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island where they are to impersonate their fictional characters

The hostess has arranged all sorts of amusing incidents - a mysterious voice on the radio, a menacing face at the window, a mad killer on the loose

Who is that body in the wine cellar anyway?

Why do little figurines keep toppling from the mantle?

Then a real murder takes place, and Miss Maple is outraged

She offers a huge reward to the "detective" who can bring the killer to justice

And what an assortment of zany would-be sleuths!

When they’re not busy tripping over clues, they trip over each other!

Laughs collide with thrills, and the climax is a real seat-grabber as the true killer is unmasked, and almost everyone turns out to be someone else!

REVIEWS

"Successfully interweaves all the classic elements with an imaginative approach ... a stylish cross between Ten Little Indians and The Cat and The Canary ... Great fun and strictly for laughs ..." ~ Green Sheet, Sun Valley (CA)
