Whether he's miserably depressed or buoyantly cheerful, a day with the delightfully unpredictable Detective Inspector Don Packham is never dull for his partner, DC Frank Mitchell - especially when it involves murder. When the body of Yvonne "Chalkie" Wood, a member of the Hollow Head Pub's darts team, is found bludgeoned in the ladies' lavatory during a night of celebration over a championship game, Packham and Mitchell accept an unspoken challenge from a clever killer. Though the victim had her share of enemies and each member of the team wished her dead, her untimely murder puts the detectives on a case of money, sex and secrets that requires luck, skill - and an excellent aim - to solve.
