Hollywood director Thelonius Kapp has bought and restored the medieval abbey of St Pierre la Croix in the south of France. He is there with his young wife, the globally acclaimed pop singer, Salome to inaugurate a three day retreat. Three deaths on the first day test the deductive powers of Irish detective Ulysses F Donaghue who is attending the retreat with lifelong friend Dr Clothilde Blanche.
Private investigator Ulysses F Donaghue has been invited by his lifelong friend, Dr Clothilde Blanche to a three day retreat at an ancient abbey in the village of St Pierre la Croix in the south of France. The abbey has been restored to its medieval glory by renowned Hollywood director, Thelonius Kapp who is attending the inaugural retreat with his young wife, the globally acclaimed pop singer, Salome.
When Thelonius Kapp and his wife's beautician are found dead it is believed that their deaths are suicide; but when a novice is found with her head crushed in the abbey's winepress Donaghue is called upon to investigate what may be a triple murder.
In the style of the great British fictional detectives Donaghue unmasks the killer before the assembled guests.
Come Away Death is a near perfect descendant of the classic Christie whodunit.
