Mr & Mrs Murder are Charlie and Nicola Buchanan - crime scene cleaners whose unique quirks and talents solve the most baffling murder mysteries. When Charlie’s monumental mind for facts and figures is combined with Nicola’s deep sense of justice, observational skills and empathy, there’s no place for any killer to hide.
Having the Buchanans clean murder scenes suits Detective Peter Vinetti, a homicide cop who is stretched beyond his means in resources and smarts. He’s not stupid, but he’s not Charlie and Nicola. He turns a blind eye to their methods, just as long as they supply a watertight chain of evidence and that he can take the credit. Peter’s infatuation with Nicola dates back to when they were in the police academy together, but it’s all one-sided.
Charlie and Nicola often enlist the reluctant help of Nicola’s strait-laced niece, Jess Chalmers in their sleuthing. Two years ago, Jess came to stay with them for a month and never left, but Charlie is adamant that she has to pay her board somehow, and going undercover or chatting up a cute murder suspect for information should cover the groceries.
