It’s May 2020, the year of COVID. SF Private Eye Chauncy is social distancing at home in SF when a long-term client zooms in with a tempting assignment.
The set-up: Playwright Allyce Singer is hosting an invitation-only theatre workshop for her new play-in-progress at Tabard Lake, a luxury property isolated deep in the high Sierras.
The catch: Each of the six guests is guilty of a long ago "sin" against Allyce. Now the playwright wants her revenge and she's written a script that points fingers at everyone.
The mission: Chauncy's supposed to quietly get the goods on everyone, so Allyce can settle the score. Sounds like easy money for a gumshoe, with a fancy all-expenses-paid vacay out of lockdown thrown in to boot.
But nothing goes according to plan. Once the company is completely cut off from civilization, all bets are off. Murder, mayhem.--and hilarity!-- ensue. Deep secrets from the past leak out to haunt the present. Everyone has a tall tale to tell, and no one can be trusted. Whodunnit?

Out of Sight Out of Mind
Wherein our intrepid gumshoe monitors the action from a secret room hidden behind a one-way mirror in the bar, and the investigation takes an unexpected supernatural turn. But not before Chauncy shakes up a pair of old school Gimlets ( half London Dry Gin, half Rose's lime juice) to toast Phillip Marlowe with Nolan, the strangely familiar Director.
No Second Chances
In episode 2, an angry pilgrim, a lusty wench and a bunch of iambic pentameter walk into a bar … err, we mean an olde English tavern …what could possibly go wrong?
Dead on Arrival
