As they do, Lady Celia runs a blackmail business on the side, Mr. Cross keeps a tally of residents' deaths, and Mrs. Bellamy decides she can't take it any more and slits her throat. Meanwhile, two newcomers also cause disturbance, as hidden pasts, unusual sexual preferences, and wickedly dark humor are mixed to delicious effect.
