Days before the 1964 General Election manager Patrick Fuller is found dead and the safe robbed at the flour mill he once owned but, financially strapped, he sold for a pittance to prospective Labour M.P. Geoffrey Pershore. Fuller's widow knows he was in an affair with a colleague's wife and the surly foreman, who blackmailed them, is the next corpse to be discovered. Bacchus discovers that Fuller was a Mason and infiltrates the local lodge to find a witness, leading Gently and himself to not one but two killers. Written by

In Geoffrey Pershore's campaign office there is a poster of the Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman fight on the wall. This fight took place on October 30, 1974 which is 10 years after the setting of this episode. See more
