SYNOPSIS
Inspector Ruffing is committed to uncovering the truth, but he’s about find it more evasive than ever. Called to an English country manor to investigate a mysterious death, Ruffing will have to unravel the truth from the lies everyone is telling him. There’s a secret here and the five ladies of the house will stop at nothing to keep it from him. Darkly humorous and thrillingly suspenseful, Ravenscroft reminds us that sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction.
