Murder Abbey


Set in a grand Downton Abbey-like estate in the roaring twenties, Kate Hess gleefully deconstructs her favorite Masterpiece Theatre conventions with smart and irreverent characters -- all while solving an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery. Keep Calm and Carry one of these corseted bitches to the gallows!
