The show features Anna Harris and David Lorimer as a young couple (Mollie and Giles Ralston) who open a small hotel about 30 miles outside London.  

Their guests include an eccentric young man, Dustin Boothby (Christopher Wren), a demanding older woman, Kathy Helms Arnold (Mrs. Boyle), a retired Army major Jack Randall Earles (Major Metcalf), and a mysterious young woman Cheyenne "Sky" Welch (Miss Casewell).

Last to arrive are Jay Prewitt (Mr. Paravacini) an unexpected guest and Cameron Wunderlich (Sgt. Trotter) a policeman investigating a London murder.

Nothing is quite what it seems, and when one of the guests is murdered, Sgt. Trotter has his hands full investigating the twists and turns of the evening.  See if you can figure it out before he does!
