Ellen Mallam is found dead in a submerged car belonging to Hector Blackstone,on whose estate her father Billy works. Bacchus is instantly hostile as Hector's spoiler son James is known for drunk driving and,whilst Hector is affable,his aristocratic wife Alethea is a dreadful snob with whom Bacchus crosses swords. James has a cut on his forehead and seems upset by the death. Bacchus theorizes that he left Ellen to die, but Gently is less certain. One thing of which he is assured,however, is that the aristocracy will always hold sway. Written by
