Professor Bevyn Jones ends up at a mystery retreat weekend in the country by a lake.
He barely has time to breathe the fresh morning air when a certain "Ladybug" sends him a text message, urging him to meet at the boathouse.
Upon his arrival, he finds the door open and a very dead body. Jones' entourage grows with Detective Jennifer Watson, posing as cocked and loaded Miss Scarlett; Bob, the smiling manager of the whole shebang; Chief Murphy, forced out of retirement and Detective Roy, a recalcitrant pain. As the number of suspects grows another body turns up dead. Bevyn probes deeper into the mansion's past. He visits his old martial arts teacher about the suspicious coincidence of an accidental death that took place in the same boathouse years before. Readers follow Jones down a bevy of dark corridors and through hidden doors one the trail of every clue. In a chandelier-lit ballroom full of suspects and law enforcement officials, Bevyn exposes the guilty and innocent. Just when the mystery appears to be solved, Bevyn follows up on one last loose end...
Ramón Boldú, pionero del cómic autobiográfico en España, ha decidido hablar de la guerra civil, la vida en el geriátrico, la muerte... Pero, a pesar de lo trascendental de todos esos temas, es incapaz de ponerse trascendente del todo, como es habitual en él, aunque lo intenta. Boldú, una vez al mes, va al geriátrico a visitar a su padre. Suelen matar el tiempo jugando al ajedrez, mientras éste le explica historias de la guerra civil española, que vivió en propia carne, de cara a conseguir material para su próximo cómic. El único familiar vivo que le queda a Boldú es su padre, por lo que es imposible que pueda contrastar la realidad de la alucinante información que éste le trasmite y se reproduce en este cómic. Al mismo tiempo, Boldú, harto de que le siga ganando al ajedrez y al enterarse de lo que, parece ser, sucede en las guerras, y harto también de las injusticias generalizadas que hay en el mundo, decide inventar un ajedrez con reglas más humanas y que incite a la humanidad a amarse, más que a matarse. El nuevo ajedrez se llama el “tango libre” y se incluye en el tomo.
