One house, six deaths. A body in a cupboard, another in the garden and more in the boot of a car. What to do? Jane and Andrew’s pleasant country house is accident prone. When daughter Sally’s boyfriend Geoff arrives for the weekend unaware of the house’s reputation, he mistakenly deduces from passing comments that the deaths were due to sinister circumstances. Geoff’s parents call unexpectedly. Jane and her sister-in-law persuade Andrew to keep up appearances by hiding evidence, which involves trundling around with bodies in wheelbarrows. Geoff is nearly convinced that he is mistaken, unaware that one of the bodies has been mistakenly stowed in the trunk of his parents’ car.
