The year is 1904 and there are those in the British government who recognise the threat that a strong Imperial German Navy would pose to Britain’s burgeoning overseas territories. Convinced of the need to build a new fleet of super battleships, plans for HMS Dreadnought are shown to a group of sceptical government ministers during a weekend break at a private estate on the banks of the River Dart in Devon. But German Naval Intelligence is determined to steal the plans and scupper the British battleship whilst it’s still on the drawing board.Never one to let murder and international espionage get in the way of a good adventure, Agatha Lucinda Jane Christie, the young year old daughter of Colonel Pemberton Christie sets about trying to solve the mystery of who is chalking up the body count and who is trying to ruin her father by stealing the battleships blueprints.

As always she’s aided in her efforts by her befuddled friend Japp and her father’s erstwhile estate manager and second in command Hercules Marple.With Arthur Conan Doyle providing the plots to stoke her active and precocious mind, and his anti-hero Mr Sherlock Holmes the character on which to base her own style of investigation, it’s only a matter of time before she is pitting her wits against the local police, who are baffled by the numerous corpses that seem to be littering the Greenaways estate.Inspector Hastings and Sergeant Beresford are more used to tracking down the lost cats of Dartmouth than solving vicious murders.

So as the body count continues to rise, it’s natural that Agatha should try to stay one step ahead of them and solve the mystery before they mess up the whole investigation.Oh, and then there’s Miss Lemon, Agatha’s spinster headmistress at St Jude’s. Dedicated to her young pupils and especially her prized protégée.

She becomes inextricably linked with a dashing German spy, the murderous goings on at Greenaways and Agatha’s attempts to solve the mystery surrounding the attempts to steal the blueprints.
