A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER turns murder most foul into entertainment most merry. A gentleman indeed, Monty Navarro's only wish is to secure his fortune by bumping off a few inconvenient relatives in Edwardian England. Fortune favors the brave, and soon the conniving killer — through happenstance and the occasional bit of malicious handiwork — is rocketing up the social scale, as his relatives fall victim to unhappy, ahem, accidents. Since these spoiled sprigs on the family tree are mostly stuffed shirts or stuffed skirts, you'll be laughing too hard to shed a tear for any of them.
