Eric Chappell’s murder mystery set in the ‘Summer End’ retirement home.
Emily and May are reluctant residents in the care home “Summer End”. Both feel that their families don’t really want them. The manageress, Mrs. Lang, is trying hard to cope, not really helped by care assistant Sally’s somewhat hostile attitude.
To complicate matters, Emily’s previous room-mate Bella has died unexpectedly, and Bella’s sapphire ring is missing. Was she murdered for her money and possessions? Is this a conspiracy involving a member of staff and another resident? Probably not, but Emily is convinced that Bella didn’t just die of old age.
The problem is, not only does no-one else believe this, but also both Mrs. Lang and Emily’s son Alan think that Emily has memory problems and possibly also dementia.
However, why did Bella have bruises on her face when she was found? What has happened to her sapphire ring? And how can Sally afford to pay so much for her fitted kitchen on a care assistant’s meagre pay?
Who knew all this went on in a care home? Come and see this comedy with much darker moments and find out what else is going on!
