Boneham Market buzzes with anticipation when Mayor Jack Brown announces a new local nature reserve in the nearby Abbey Fields.
But local journalist Kate Redmond smells not so much a rare butterfly as a very common rate and decides to do some sniffing about herself.
Does the body in Abbey Fields of 20 years ago have any bearing on current events? Why does the Editor pitch her off the story and demand a feature-spread on the private fantasies of Bonehamites?
As the starry-eyed dreamers sing of their ambitions to Kate 'the Queen of Dreamland', can Kate 'the Watergate' weave another thread altogether and snare her prey?
Set against the background of the conservation debate, Natural Causes is a new musical thriller - a kind of David Bellamy meets Miss Marple!
