Murder in Merry Old” is set in the lush, charming area of The New Forest in the southwest of contemporary England dotted with quaint and vibrant villages that seem caught in the peace and quiet of yesterday.  Until...

Simon Grand and his ominous band of American tourists invade the Forest. Murder travels with them.

A dozen colorful characters locked together, isolated -- strangers in a strange land -- who bring along more baggage than their Louis Vuitton and who follow their leader, urbane and elegant, charismatic and enigmatic Simon Grand  through Heaven and Hell.

You are cordially invited along.

Just pack something bulletproof.
