Benjamin Arnold Guppy loved turnips. He loved eating them, but most of all he loved throwing them. He also loved money and pain... extorting a lot of the former and causing an equal amount of the latter. A foul, sour-faced old swindler with a penchant for clucking like a chicken and more than a passing interest in the local postman, he was determined to get his hands on his neighbours' money, regardless of the cost. As it turned out, the price was his life.
'The Wonderful Demise of Benjamin Arnold Guppy' is a tale of blackmail, turnip tossing, and the cold-blooded murder of an incredibly irritating old man.
