Daisy Waugh – Phone for the Fish Knives

 

Synopsis from Waterstones

The Todes are back, and they’re taking on Hollywood . . .

When Hollywood wants to do a remake of the film that made Tode Hall famous, India and Egbert are delighted. They envisage a summer of free money and star-studded dinner parties ahead . . .

But the Hall is soon overrun by wardrobe trucks and catering tents, and lusty, insecure actors squabbling about nudity clauses. When the movie’s producers threaten to sue over the exact colour of Tode Hall’s rolling lawns, India and Egbert realise that having a film crew on their doorstep isn’t such a breeze after all. With so many egos in one place things were bound to end badly, but no one would have predicted quite so literal a backstabbing . . .

Reviews

A glorious satire on aristocratic manners and mores, with a smidgeon of murder thrown in, Waugh’s hilarious and entirely original twist on the country house murder mystery is ‘a perfect antidote to all the real-life craziness going on’. Daily Mail

 

She’s spot on; she’s skewered her targets brilliantly. Imogen Edwards-Jones

 

A country-house murder mystery with nods to Agatha Christie and Evelyn Waugh… a delightful treat. The Lady

 

A work of sublime silliness. The knife-edge between crime and comedy is a tricky one, but Daisy Waugh negotiates it magnificently . . . a delightful book, witty, pacy and beautifully written. Simon Brett
