The Real Inspector Hound - USA EDITION

6 Male, 3 Female

Tom Stoppard Price: $9.99

Feuding theatre critics Moon and Birdfoot, the first a fusty philanderer and the second a pompous and vindictive second stringer, are swept into the whodunit they are viewing

In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie like melodramas that follows, the body under the sofa proves to be the missing first string critic

As mists rise about isolated Muldoon Manor, Moon and Birdfoot become dangerously implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman
