Having your 400-year-dead ancestors sharing your home is all very well if you’re Tim Eason or his understanding wife Sarah. It’s not so good when you invite friends round to dinner, especiallywhen one is terrified of ghosts.The dinner party is an unlikely group: aging Sir Cedric Foot-Wart, whose green-haired cook Euphemia Crimp has a drink problem, has one last fling with his inexperienced mistress; incorrigible Lady Cynthia has outlandish ideas to promote her Sex And Fantasy Emporium at the Methusaleh Retirement Resort; normally laid back Chief Inspector George Young fears for the worst if his overweight, social climbing, wife Hilda gets wind that Augustus and Elizabeth Wilton are not entirely human. And how does incompetent Police Constable Bud Blossom’s ongoing feud with seasoned poacher Mick Sturbs fit into the picture?Perhaps Tim’s idea of holding the dinner party in the ruins of Priorton Priory wasn’t such a good idea … and installing portaloos there was definitely a big mistake!Prior Engagement, or Plagued to Death! is the hilarious sequel to Gunpowder, TREason and Plot, or How we dug up the Ancestors, which confirmed the author’s reputation as a writer of British farcical and highly humorous novels.
