Teen-aged Zoe Stock, a brilliant pianist, is attending a music school run by the Fielding family when she believes she sees a woman drown herself in the river, having left her baby on the bank. When the police arrive there is nothing to support her claim but Barnaby recalls that a mystery woman died in identical circumstances eighteen years earlier. Her body was found by Catholic priest Father Gregory, outside whose church an attempt is made to kill Zoe. A lucrative prize awaits the young musician adjudged the best by the Fieldings and it is assumed that another student is responsible.- Written by don @ minifie-1
Zoe Stock is a student at the prestigious Fielding music school run by Sir Michael Fielding. She is a brilliant young pianist, somewhat prone to panic attacks, and is selected for Sir Michael's Master Class and is also in the running for the Fielding Medal. Out by the river one day a young blond woman carrying a baby walks by and a few moments later she throws herself into the river. The police are unable to find a body or any sign of a baby but DCI Tom Barnaby recalls an almost identical case at the same spot some 18 years before. After an unsuccessful attempt on her life, Zoe moves into the village pub with her visiting parents but sees a old photo with the woman she saw jump into the river. The competition at the school is fierce but the parents seem worse than their children. After two quick deaths - one of the students in the Master Class and a local priest - and a serious road accident involving two others, Barnaby stitches all of the pieces together.- Written by garykmcd
