When a man is found dead near the home of his ex wife, Barnaby ancd Jones investigate the barman at local hotel. He is the brother of the dead man's ex and seems to be holding something back. Meanwhile, the hotel is connected in another way when Guy Sandy, editor of the glossy magazine 'Midsomer Life' is found stabbed to death after supposedly keeping an appointment there with an unknown man. The plot thickens when the hotel's housekeeper, who has trouble keeping her mouth shut about whom she believes is responsible for the deaths is murdered after being pushed into a tumble dryer.
A complicated one indeed for Barnaby and his sidekick. Finding out the 'who' and the 'why' is certainly an interesting journey for the viewer and I'm sure you'll enjoy taking the trip in this excellent episode.
