This murder mystery takes place in 1992 at the memorial service for the well known coffee magnate Vidal Bean, who founded the Bean Trading Company.  His family, friends and business colleagues have gathered to celebrate his life.  Unfortunately, a pall has fallen over proceedings because the police have recently announced that they have reason to believe that Vidal Bean was murdered.
