When oil tycoon John Johnson is found with a huge sword in his back, it looks like a straightforward case of dying illegally. But things in Drake’s world are never as they seem. Why was Johnson badly disguised as his own wife? Why had he eaten a tortoise? And why do all the women in the house look similar?
For once, Sergeant Plod thinks he knows all the answers. And so he should. After all, he’s relating the events through a series of flashbacks, so he knows how it all ends. But if Plod is right, the legendary Inspector Drake is about to make a terrible mistake.
And there’s something even more disturbing. The trusty Sergeant has been troubled by a recurring nightmare. It’s a nightmare involving spiders, and the image of a man, lying dead. That man is Inspector Drake. Is this just another confusing flashback? Or the horrible truth of Drake’s final destiny?
After all, when the Black Widow lays her deadly trap, it’s just a matter of time.
It is with great sadness that my first major announcement as president is that our 2020 season is now “coming soon” rather than entertaining you as expected.
These are challenging times for all of us, both personally & professionally, but you can be assured that we will be back just as soon as it’s safe & practical to do so – and we’ll kick off with the hilarious “Inspector Drake & the Black Widow” as our first show.
