QUEENS OF MYSTERY follows the entertaining adventures of Beth, Cat and Jane Stone, three crime-writing sisters, and their 28-year old niece, Detective Sergeant Matilda Stone. Using their extensive knowledge of crime - both real and fictional - they solve whodunit style murders in the picturesque English village of Wildemarsh. But no matter how many cases they are able to crack, the unsolved mystery that haunts them all is that of Matilda's mother's disappearance. Between investigating murders from the curious to the bizarre and writing their own renowned novels, the three aunts also attempt to help their perennially single niece find love.
