Philomena Muinzer Spoof spiritualist Gideon Pees blinding ineptitude at predicting the future is seriously impeding his stage career. Extrasensory powers remain maddeningly elusive - until one day he gets the vision hes always hankered after. And its a biggy... An unannounced visit from an old college chum might just shake things up a bit for Felix Abercrombie, a canal-dwelling youth worker nudging forty.

For Frankie (a ham-fisted conjuror struggling to assuage a hazardously imminent mid-life crisis)arrives bearing baggage of unspeakable horror. Conveniently, Felixs incomprehensible infatuation for flying widens the possibilities for disposing of his visitors putrefying bundle. His tranquillity becomes further assaulted by the appearance of Frankies oddball cohort, Salvatore and Giuseppe, and soon the fatuous four find themselves lumbered with a second grizzly cadaver they hadnt bargained for.

If they didnt know better they might suspect events had been preordained, or at any rate coaxed along by someone with an oddly cynical axe to grind... Clues to what appears to be two motiveless gothic murders dribble in to the police at a snails pace, but its all too much for DI Toogood and his trivia-sponge minion, Sgt Chanter.

Perhaps upwardly-mobile PC Dring can figure it all out?
