Description

As the police investigate, a series of further deaths from apparent spontaneous human combustion follow. It is discovered that John had been used as a guinea pig for scientific experiments by his brother Max, who suspected he had the ability of 'Second Sight'.

As the investigation proceeds, it becomes clear that the killer is a very disturbed individual who has been triggered to commit murder by a momentous personal event. Upon his death, Karl Wainwright, owner of the Easterly Grange Hotel, leaves an estate with a number of beneficiaries, including hotel manager Gregory Chambers, his wife Suzanna ( Samantha Bond), and hotel chef Tristan Goodfellow.When James Harrington is also found murdered, Barnaby and Troy realise, that they need to work fast to avoid further deaths.

With a mysterious figure seen lurking around the churchyard, conductor rivalry, and a possible art scam, there are many things to be investigated. The 'Beast of Midsomer' is blamed when former secret agent Geoffrey Larkin is found murdered in the village of Midsomer Parva with savage wounds to his face. When the body of farmer Martin Strickland is found in woodland, it transpires that he was covered in truffle oil and mauled to death by a wild boar. Legend has it that the headless apparition of Sir Geoffrey DeQuetteville, riding a grey horse, spells imminent death to any member of the DeQuetteville family who sees it. Miss Townsend had angered many, and received death threats after being blamed for the death of a local tenant.When barman Jamie Cruickshank, and then Stephen Bannerman, are shot dead, Barnaby and Scott have to find out whether Jamie or Stephen was the intended target of the first murder. During the family dinner, Poppy Ordish, daughter of Beatrix Ordish and Oliver Ordish, refuses to eat beef. The Wild West Society bring their show to Ford Florey, comprising a fairground, and several re-enactments of scenes from American frontier history.

Events come to a dramatic conclusion when Barnaby and Jones unexpectedly interrupt the charity evening to arrest the killer. DCI Barnaby, DS Nelson, and new forensic pathologist Kam Karimore enter a very macabre world of body-snatching.His roof is leaking and his peaceful dinner with Joyce at the local hostelry is interrupted when he has to break up a fight between the two elderly patriarchs of the Hicks and Hammonds families who, despite being wheelchair bound, battle it out with baguettes! Brenda Buckley ( Sophie Stanton), Alan’s new mistress, follows Alan to Finchmere Market and sees him depositing a suitcase containing what appears to be a ransom payment. Its former publican Michael Bannerman, who is well-liked among the locals, has handed control of The Maid to his humourless son Stephen. When Ferdy's nephew, Howard, finds a message in a Christmas cracker predicting that members of the family will be dead by midnight Boxing Day, everyone dismisses it a prank -- until Aunt Lydia falls down the stairs and is fatally injured. When Debbie Moffett is lured to the caves and is subsequently bludgeoned by a wheel of cheese, it leads the detectives to investigate both the secret, controversial plans to modernize the dairy and the private lives of the parents of children at the local preparatory school in the same village.

When her death is confirmed as no accident, Barnaby and Troy start to question the eccentric and quirky residents. Alexander was known as an unpopular landlord in the village, and is discovered to be an estranged husband who had betrayed his wife for a new lover known as Holly Ackroyd. A series of other incidents follow, including a remotely controlled bomb explosion where Causton mayor Dave Hicks and his father Lionel narrowly escape with their lives, and the murder of Henry's son Johnny who is gunned down in front of his house. The two detectives uncover a tapestry of lies, blackmail, jealousy, and a very well planned robbery. He becomes increasingly uncomfortable when one of the female inductees, along with Ruth herself, seem to be emotionally drawn to him.When Jamie is also found murdered, the detectives are faced with an abundance of suspects and motives, as Jamie seemed to have been universally hated. Six months later Alan's widow Hilary and his brother Charles are married, much to the chagrin of Alan's son Ian. When the annual harvest fair arrives in the village of Whitcombe Mallet, it reopens old wounds for some villagers.
