All, apparently, hate each other. And they keep losing one housekeeper after another. What keeps these women together? What dark secret are they all hiding? And why do they all keep dying? Find out in this comedy chiller, where you’re not sure who or what to believe, who is really murdering who. And finally, what really happened to Jinx, the cat?
