Mayo and the team investigate the apparent murder of Marian Dove, the matriarch of a family-owned glass business. Working late one night, Marian is lured onto the shop floor where someone arranges for a glass chandelier to drop onto her. Her son-in-law Ken is the managing director of the firm and her sister Gwen's husband Robert Bainbridge also works there. They all assume they will inherit something but are stunned when her recently revised will names Steven Marshall, the son she gave up for adoption when she gave birth to him at age 17, as her sole beneficiary. The family solicitor Mr.Crytch was also in line for a sizable portion of the estate under the old will. A DNA test establishes the identity of Marshall's father and leads directly to the killer.
