The Reading of The Will (1920s) - Lythe Hill

The occasion is the reading of the will of the late Lord Crump, who suffered from acute angina and died in his sleep a few weeks ago. The coroner ruled that his death was natural causes, but gossips downstairs are suggesting that he had company on that fateful night and it was not his wife. He leaves a collection of motor cars and a substantial amount of art to his beneficiaries.

Leading the mourners is his wife, Lady Margaret. She was Lord Crump’s second wife after his first wife, a well known film star, was killed in a riding accident. Also present are the late Lord Crump’s son Roland, a gambler with delusions of adequacy, and his younger brother Oswald, an industrialist with a big ego. He’s self-made and worships his creator.

The reading of the will is suddenly disrupted by the arrival of a detective. Annie Messages, a legal secretary with Lord Crump’s Solicitors Canweem Billem & Howe, has been found dead at the company offices. Foul play is suspected! As would be expected, the reading of the will is thrown into disarray. Guests will be called upon to help the police in finding the identity of the murderer.
