Plot Synopsis

QUEENS OF MYSTERY is a mystery drama series that follows a perennially single female detective, Mattie Stone, and her three aunts -- the motherly Aunt Beth, the rebellious Aunt Cat, and the book smart Aunt Jane -- who are well-known crime writers that help her
solve whodunit style murders, as well as set her up on blind dates. In addition to her weekly murder investigations, Mattie is also preoccupied by the fact that her mother Eleanor disappeared without a trace when Mattie was three. The ongoing mystery of Eleanor's disappearance continues to haunt the Stone women. QUEENS OF MYSTERY premieres Monday, April 8, 2019 on Acorn TV, debuting two new episodes. The two-part series opener, "Murder in the Dark," finds the newly promoted DS Matilda Stone dispatched to Hiddledean Hall where all three of her aunts are attending the 15th Wildemarsh Crime Writer's Festival. In a crime as strange as the fiction on display, the prestigious Golden Pick Axe Award has been found buried in the head of a prize nominee, and pages from his latest manuscript have been stolen. Everyone present is suspect, from the rival nominees -- including Matilda's Aunt Beth -- to hot headed agents and slimy publishers, who all had something to gain from the death... Or does the solution to the crime lie in the fictional story that someone has gone to such extreme lengths to hide?
The first season of QUEENS OF MYSTERY concluded on Monday, April 22, 2019, as Acorn TV released another two-episode story. The season ender, ""Smoke and Mirrors," is set in the Wildemarsh Corn Exchange Theatre, where rehearsals are in progress for an adaptation of Jane Stone's futuristic novel The Macbeth Duality, starring celebrated thespian, Sir Lawrence Shaw. Hopes are high, particularly as Sir Lawrence has managed to persuade his twice ex-wife Dame Blanche Chastain out of retirement to take a small role. But when a large sandbag falls from high in the flies, crushing one of the cast, Matilda's investigations lead her to conclude this was no accident. As Matilda works her way through her suspects - the larger than life cast and crew of the play -- Cat and Beth do some investigating of their own, and uncover bribes and secret obsessions behind the scenes. The plot thickens when a second body is found, and one of the remaining cast absconds... There will be more bodies on the stage floor unless Matilda acts fast.
