About this deal

DCI Barnaby and DS Winter explore whether the motive was animal-rights activism, theft of one of the prize-winning pets, or something more sinister, to catch the culprit. The family firm, King's Crystal, is in financial uncertainty, with plans to close its factory in Midsomer Magna. These things become even more complicated when the estate manager and former cook are also found murdered. At the Midsomer Regatta, the beautiful day is interrupted when the dead chairman of the local rowing club of Guy Sweetman is found in the water.

Meanwhile, Graham Spate, a small-time villain, is also tortured to death, and an art dealer is found with his throat slashed.The murderer is hidden in plain sight, and it is a long time before Barnaby finally realises who the culprit is. Eric Calder, Chairman and boss of Calder's Biscuits, is found murdered whilst on a business trip in Copenhagen. The two attend a 1940s-style dance night at the village hall, before another man is found stabbed and more secrets come to light. The detectives race to find the motive for the murder, as Strickland's daughter is also killed and attempts are made on the lives of other staff of Wyvern House.

When the annual summer pet show comes to the village of Bellville, it is rocked by the murder of a local estate agent, Seb Huntington. When Barnaby and Jones start their enquiries into the possible drowning, they discover many dark connections to the past. They find out all information about former criminals alongside all the secret liaisons, before they bring all the culprits to justice. A German backpacker, an au pair and a hotel maid had all been raped and strangled with neckties in the wood, which soon acquired the name "Strangler’s Wood", among the press and local population. Strickland was the landlord of Wyvern House, an upmarket and picturesque country house restaurant run by a passionate celebrity chef, Ruth Cameron.

As most of the other cast members of the Causton Amateur Dramatics Society loathed him, there are multiple motives and suspects for his murder.
