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.
DCI Gently and DS Bacchus investigate the death of Patrick Fuller, who is found hanging in the mill he managed, an apparent suicide. When they find that the office safe has been ransacked, they think foul play may be involved. The mill is owned by Geoffrey Pershore who is a Labour candidate in the upcoming general election. He had purchased the mill from Fuller the year before in order to jobs in the area but the police uncover a secret that may have been the cause of Fuller's death. Before they can come to some conclusion about the nature of Fuller's death, another mill employee is killed.
Gently and Bacchus arrive in a small town to investigate when a mill manager is found hanged in what seems to be a suicide case.
