Summary
When the adventurous Zarl Osterley is invited to an English country house for the weekend, she is told to bring her monkey Percy. She also takes her friend, who is disguised as a maid and monkey-minder. During their stay the peaceful, idyllic atmosphere of Tattingwood Hall is wrecked by a dastardly crime. Famous diamonds go missing, the Chief Inspector called in to investigate is discovered horribly murdered. The monkey, the maid and the magnetic Zarl all get inextricably involved in the whole nasty business, and it takes the women's brains and shrewdness to sort out a mess that spoils the weekend for everyone. This reprint of the 1933 original is a delightful spoof on popular British detective series of the late 1920's and 1930's
