It's coming on Christmas, and Arthur Ferryman is headed to his ancestral home, Belrive Priory. Looking forward to a peaceful holiday, Arthur's serenity is quickly interrupted by a horde of his cousins brandishing revolvers. Shooting, it seems, is their hobby du jour.This ancient estate has remained unchanged for centuries. As the area is invaded by neon signs, textile factories, and smells from the brewery, Belrive Priory has timelessly stood its ground. But when the family learns that their cousin Basil intends to sell the estate, fault lines begin to appear.Furtive glances, cryptic rumours, and clandestine meetings abound. A secret family quarrel and anticipation of the mysterious Mr X's arrival keep everyone on their toes, and it seems none of the trigger-happy relations can be trusted when one of the party is found shot.With Arthur harbouring secrets and a few grudges of his own, will Inspector Appleby be able to crack this case before any further 'accidents' transpire or will the shooter finally hit his mark?
