DCI Barnaby and DS Jones investigate the death of Dr. Alan Delaney who was purposely run down by someone driving a pick-up truck. Delaney was driving Dr. James Kirkwood's brand new SUV and Barnaby believes Kirkwood may have been the intended victim. He doesn't have to look far to find anyone who would like to see Kirkwood dead. Jim Kirkwood and Delyth Mostin had only recently announced they were to be married. Both had been married previously but Kirkwood is a widower and Mostin divorced. Dorothy Hutton had asked Barnaby if it's suspicious that her son-in-law James is re-marrying a mere four years after his first wife, her daughter Sarah, died. Barnaby assures her that Sarah's death was fully investigated and James Kirkwood was nowhere near her bedside at the time of her death.

Delyth Mostyn: So, my fellow foot-sloggers, this is the plan. We make an early start from Causton and have lunch here at Beddgelert. Then we drive to Gorffwysfa and descending by the Miner's Track we go past Llyn Teryn and Llyn Llydaw, and then we tackle the giant himself: Yr Wyddfa.
Clifford Rawnsley: I thought we were going to Snowdon.

Ordinary Greed and Excess
11 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a story of a woman who allows her children to go bad. They don't have to look out for themselves and have begun to lust after her fortune. Unfortunately for them, she has found a doctor who is going to make a good life with her. He is seen as an invader into their greed. A couple of them have actually become embezzlers and have been borrowing using an illegal deed. The problem is that they resort to murder but mistakenly kill the wrong man. Anyway, their efforts draw a lot of attention. Their feuding and bickering draw attention to them and that is not a good thing. Barnaby and Jones are caught again in a tussle other crimes confuse the issues.
