Seventy-five-year-old Isobel Hewitt has no intention of slowing down her hectic lifestyle just because of her advancing years, in fact, it's quite the opposite. She drives a very fast and impressive jaguar and lives life to the full in every way possible.
There is a certain amount of humour when Isobel is accused by a fellow female fly fisherperson of conduct unbecoming a lady in the fly fishing arena but it certainly isn't funny when both Isobel and then later, her friend Dr. Goff are found murdered on the banks of the river; killed by heavy blows with a blunt instrument.
The problem for Barnaby and Troy lies in the fact that there are just about as many suspects as there are people in the village but getting to the bottom of the 'who'and the 'why' proves to be quite a difficult task when another local resident is found frozen to death in a large locked freezer. Who wanted these people dead? Watch and see, it's a tough one to figure out, but you'll have heaps of fun trying!
