But, the plot has been written by one of Britain’s most successful crime writers, Ian Rankin so all is not as it seems.

Four teams of amateur detectives arrive on Murder Island greeted by senior investigating officers, and they all travel to the crime scene, the Manse, where the body of Hendricks was discovered earlier that day.
