After an evening of darts and vintage brandy, a distinguished, although amorous, barrister succumbs to rigor mortis in a cozy pub. Every witness swears that the freak accident was caused by a dart that punctured the victim's finger. But to Inspector Roderick Alleyn, the "accident" is really a clever case of murder and everyone in the bar has a motive! Written by Daphne O. Klemme <>

I did not like this at all.

A barrister get poisoned that is a friend of Inspector Alleyn and he tries to find out what happened. The barrister, Luke Watchman also has a thing for a girl named Decima who is dull and and snotty. The dead man and another man are jealous of each other because of her.

Half way through the video a artist and the cousin of Luke are homosexuals and share the same bed. I don't like this.

Inspector Alleyn tries to be like Inspector Hathway in "Lewis". He starts quoting some author to make us believe he is smart. He is cute but no Hathaway.

So on with the story.
