Episode Summary

The Inspector Lynley Mysteries: In the Guise of Death
After spending some of her compensation money learning aikido at a retreat in Cornwall, Havers has been invited by Lynley's mother, Lady Asherton, to stay at the estate. Lynley is also in Cornwall visiting his mother.

A horse trainer, Jim Fenner, who lives on a neighboring estate, is found hanged in his stable.

The victim's money worries point to a verdict of suicide, but Lynley discovers a connection to a local smuggling racket and that Fenner had been drugged with horse anesthetic.

Another lead takes Lynley and Havers into the local horse world, where they come into contact with the local aristocracy, including Lady Sarah Keach, a keen horsewoman and friend of Lynley's mother.

The killer may be closer to home than they imagined.moreless

  • Lynley brings Havers home to Mum

    On Lynley's visit home to the family estate, a local horse owner is murdered. Since Havers happens to be nearby recupertaing from her injuries, Lynley brings her to Asherton Hall to help him solve the murder.

    The case really belongs to local DC Tremayne, who wants Lynley's help so he can get a promotion. The friendship they develop is great and it's really too bad that character won't be coming back. Lynley, Tremayne and Havers run all over Cornwall following a variety of leads, including the horse community connection, the possibility of smuggling and drugs. Eventually, it turns out his mother's new best friend holds the key to the murder. While they really didn't figure out what is really relevant for some time I enjoyed seeing the Cornwall scenery and we definitely learned a lot about how Lynley grew up. We meet his mother again, his sister and spend time at the estate he grew up on. It is also interesting to see the strained relationship he has with his mother and how hard he tries to hide his crumbling marriage from his family.moreless
