[Gerard Etienne's body has been discovered]
Mr Etienne took over the firm fairly recently. Would you say that he was well liked?
[Mrs Demery looks quizzically at him]
Well, he wouldn't have been carried out of here in a body bag if he'd been a little ray of sunshine, now would he, Commander?

A real filmatic quality to this one, not least the opening scene. We have Dalgliesh reading poetry to some music and beautiful cinematography from a boat on the Thames with the backdrop of the Houses of Parliament. A quality cast too, Ian Bannen in his later years and the much under- rated Amanda Root in her prime particularly worthy of mention. A good plot, if slightly confusing opening , that is nevertheless worth sticking with.
