Detective Inspector I. B. Clueless – The policeman sent to solve the crime
Efficient in his own peculiar way, Ian Buchanan Clueless has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone! If anything he is more like a bungling detective than a methodical one, but it has to be said, he does get results.
Alice Gordon – the deceased’s wife.
Alice Gordon likes to think of herself as rich and enjoys spending. She is friendly and outgoing, with a likeable personality, but can be gullible and is not too good at problem solving. Understandably she finds the whole investigation difficult, not least because it is her husband that is dead. She is devestated by his death and cries a lot of the time.
Colonel Geoffrey Simons – A pompous and arrogant millionaire.
Colonel Simons’ wealth was inherited and he is very used to living the high life. He can be aggressive and sarcastic and has little time for the lower classes, or investigations. Colonel Geoffrey Simons is on holiday with his wife.
Mrs Felicity Simons – His wife.
Felicity Simons is on holiday with her husband Colonel Geoffrey Simons. Born rich and married to a rich man, Felicity has never associated with the lower classes, except to do shady business. She is dazzlingly beautiful and although isn’t loud or aggressive, she is more than capable of manipulating people and situations to her advantage. She appears friendly, but there is that touch of ice about her.
Rodney Bell – Businessman.
Rodney Bell is staying in the hotel on business. Although blunt and businesslike, Rodney Bell likes women and can be quite charming when he wants to be. He is a man who likes to take charge, a real man’s man, even if he does disagree with blood sports.
Patricia Johnson – Hotel Cleaner
Patricia Johnson has a cheerful and sunny disposition but is not what you would describe as bright. She missed out on her education and has been cleaning ever since. She is more than a little outclassed when compared with the rest of the cast.
Julie McAndrews – Widow on holiday.
Filled with commonsense and down-to-earth-ness Julia isn’t particularly bothered by blood or death and is quite happy to be involved in the murder investigation. She is Scottish and is used to fussing over people. She has been a widow for some time, but is beginning to enjoy male company again and will attempt flirting with single men that she finds attractive.
