Summary
  • Disc 1: It's spring 1948 and Inspector Alleyn joins a weekend party at Frantock Hall. The host, Sir Hubert Handesley, tries to liven up the scene with a game of murder but one guest really does end up dead. Alleyn has to solve more than one mystery when he finds that, in addition to the murder, an enormously valuable silver chalice has gone missing
  • Disc 2 : The British Home Secretary dies after an operatin for abdominal pains, but his wife insists he's been murdered. When Alleyn investigates her claim, he finds a great many things at the nursing home are not as they should be. He also finds a great many suspects, including a surgeon with a grievance, a nurse crossed in love, a betrayed wife, and a bewildering array of political enemies
  • Disc 3 : Troy has a commission to paint a birthday portrait of the famous actor Sir Henry Ancred at his country estate, Ancreton Manor. She finds the volatile Sir Henry agitated and ill, surrounded by his eccentric and equally dramatic family. A sudden, suspicious death at the manor leads Troy to call in Alleyn to investigate. He finds a tale of anonymous letters and bitter arguments over the dead man's will, lending credence to Troy's suspicions
  • Disc 4 : An eminent barrister dies in an incident at a village inn, seemingly killed by a poisoned dart. That is mystery enough, but when Alleyn goes to investigate he finds a wealth of suspects and a web of deceit he must unravel to catch the murderer
