It's clear to most members of Midsomer Worthy's Writers' Circle that asking bestselling author Max Jennings to talk to them is a little ambitious.
Less clear are the reasons for secretary Gerald Hadleigh's fierce objections to seeing the man - a face from his past - again.
Astonishingly, Jennings accepts the invitation but, before the night is out, Gerald is dead.
Summoned to investigate, Chief Inspector Barnaby finds that Gerald's life is as much of a mystery to his neighbours as his violent death.
The key is surely their illustrious guest speaker - but where is he now?
