Big commotion in Ashfordly. The famous pop manger Stan Sparrow returns to his native town to marry his latest young star Cathy Dee. The next morning Sparrow is found dead in his room at the Aidenfield Arms. The police thinks that he was murdered, but who will kill a man who is already dying of leukaemia? Has it something to do with the memoirs that he was writing? PC Wetherby catches Aunt Peggy with ten cases of stolen rum and suddenly she suffers from a total loss of memory (very conveniently) when the PC tries to interview her. But maybe Alf Ventress can cure her. Or David since he may have won a fortune on the football pools and can't find the coupon. Young Ben informs PC Younger of a crime about to happen, but when the criminal is apprehended Younger is very reluctant to reveal his informant. Understandably since Ben's family name is Wetherby - as in PC Wetherby. Written by
