As Alexandra Langston, a 28-year-old security consultant living in Burlington, Vermont, prepares for an annual family reunion, she figures that the boredom will be the deadliest part. The reunion is going along about as Alex expected until her rich uncle Arthur is stabbed to death in the kitchen on the final evening, making a bloody mess and forcing the family to stay and eat warm bologna sandwiches for the next week. It seems that the maid did it, until Alex learns that her Uncle Fremont was murdered in a similar manner 40 years earlier. The family includes an eccentric cast of characters, and everyone has a motive. For example, there''s Claire, the beautiful model and raging cocaine addict; and her plain sister Christina, a raging television addict. Cousin Ian was planning on using the inheritance to send his toddler to Harvard. Even Aunt Elaine, whose main interests include chopped vegetables and pot roasts, was involved in a steamy affair. And some of the relatives suspect that Alex herself did it! Alex must sort through a myriad of clues, lies and sex scandals to try to find out who is guilty of the crime.
