The Forgotten Daughter
18 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

We are led down the garden path, so to speak. A woman from a very rich family has decided to take down a garden that has graced a small town form many decades. She is part of the Inkpens, a snobbish group that feels above the entire community. One young woman in particular lords it over everyone, including other family members. Her mother is a virago and her grandma a tyrant. She also has a half-sister, the product of her father's dalliance, apparently. She is a sober young woman who plays the Cinderella role to her blonde entitled sibling. One day the former is murdered from a blow to the head with a shovel, while the townspeople attend a meeting to air their anger over the destruction of the garden. Soon other bodies are in evidence. The person who built the garden is dying and his daughter has taken up the cause. She becomes a suspect as well. So many possibilities. There are even more. It is another nicely done episode but a bit contrived.
