Storyline

Teen-aged postulate Therese is killed in a fire at the island convent,apparently caused by her smoking, the door to her room being locked from the inside. Poole,however,suspects foul play when he finds that Therese has been sent a threatening note and clearly knew more than she should. Daryl Dexter,arranging public relations for the convent after the discovery of a holy well that cures the sick,is a prime suspect as Therese discovered he was bribing the 'sick' to claim they had been miraculously cured. Another suspect is Father John,guilty of an indiscretion many years ago at a convent where Therese eventually stayed. Poole uncovers a crime of passion in solving the case though he finds it harder to remove his phobia about nuns. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

Sister Marguerite, one of the nuns, clearly wears make-up throughout, which would be forbidden to nuns. Her lipstick and mascara are particularly noticeable when Dwayne is mending the puncture on her bicycle. It cannot be explained by her being a postulate, unlike Therese, as she has been a nun in that convent for several years. See more »
