Product Description

Product Description

The sleepy town of Kingsmarkham is rocked by the demise of two of its most senior members. Mr. and Mrs. Betts stand to inherit the house of their insufferable mother Ivy Wrangton after her death, but is that reasonable grounds upon which to accuse them of murder? Similarly, could blame for the apparent suicide of Ann Waterton be laid at the door of the teenager who has recently befriended her? Whilst local gossips provide their own versions of events, Inspector Wexford (George Baker) sets out to uncover the truth.

Verified Purchase

Among the senior citizens of quiet Kingsmarkham, these apple-faced kindly country folk, the world of passion and desires is not yet dim. Did septuagenarians Mr and Mrs Betts murder their unbearable old mother, Ivy Wrangton, to inherit her house? Gossip among the Castle Road post office ladies says that when Mrs Wrangton "died" there would be no inquest; yet Elsie Parrish, Mrs Wrangton's best friend, who also got a little something in her will, won't hear of any foul play.
The case at first seems as innocuous as the suicide of childless Ann Waterton, an old lady befriended by lonely mixed up teenager Sophie Grant.
What can be the dark side of this sweet story?
When both cases turn out to be murder, Wexford and Burden discover the real stakes of human feeling involved.

Another great Inspector Wexford mystery to watch, which, along with the other TVS-televised Inspector Wexford stories, I highly recommend to anyone interested in classic television in general.
