| Marreau and the Chocolate Policeman is best described as a
detective comedy. There is a complex and mysterious case to be solved, but there
are constant humorous diversions which serve to both lighten and complicate the
Marreau, the famous continental private detective - precisely where in Europe he is from is open to conjecture - along with his secretary, Gwendolyn and friend Simpson are staying at the country estate of Lady Eustace. They have been invited there for a weekend shoot which has passed off without incident. Just after midnight a shot rings out and we are soon informed that Lady Eustace is lying dead in the gun-room.
Marreau, assisted by Gwendolyn, and hampered by the well-meaning Simpson, attempt to discover who has murdered her - if indeed she was murdered. It quickly transpires that virtually everyone had a motive for killing her. One individual in particular seems a likely suspect, until he himself is the next victim, meeting his end in a most unusual manner! False clues and dark secrets abound as the case unfolds as much by luck as by judgement. In a stunning denouement all is revealed and Marreau proudly exclaims his brilliance.
