Leon Winter always spices up his dinner parties with a practical joke or two, so when the electricity cuts out and a mysterious voice booms from the darkness the guests on this particular night do not think the worst. Then shots ring out and the joke turns into a nightmare. The eccentric Chief Inspector Plum investigates a case that involves hidden identities, marital deception and twisted quotations from Shakespeare. And in a brilliant coup de'theatre, the audience gets a major clue to the solution well before anyone else. Funny, intriguing and exciting, WHO DIES WINS is a comedy-thriller that delivers on all fronts!
