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 spoilt 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 but soon afterwards is found dead himself. Bacchus theorizes that he left Ellen to die and committed suicide out of remorse but Gently is less certain. One thing of which he is assured,however,is that the aristocracy will always hold sway.
