Detailed Plot Synopsis of Decorated To Death



Kensington, April 2004, 22.00, 240 pp.

Simon Kirby-Jones joins his vampire lover in eternity, but creatures of the night are fickle. When Trevor breaks up with Simon, he gives him Laurel Cottage in the English Village of Snupperton Mumsley and Simon moves to the other side of the Atlantic. He fits in well with the other residents thanks to the small white pills he takes that allows him to go out in sunlight and kills the need for human blood. He writes novels and non-fiction under pseudonyms while his assistant Sir Giles Blitherington wants more than a business relationship with the vampire.

The village is agog that Zeke Harwood, host of a home decorating TV show, comes to Blithering Hall to redecorate one of the rooms. Zeke goes out of his arrogant way to be unpleasant to everyone including his host and hostess, his television producer, his personal assistant, his lover and even his sister. When someone murders the man Simon doesn't want his assistant or his mother considered as viable suspects. In the tradition of Poirot, he investigates using resources the police don't have, to figure out who killed a man that everyone hated.
