Barbara Havers is re-appointed to her rank of Detective Sergeant and she and Inspector Lynley are assigned to investigate the murder of Morag McNicholl. The killing was made to look like a suicide but it is clear she was killed by a blow to the head and that her wrists were slit after her death. The police also find a large amount of cash in the flat so they can rule out robbery as a motive. The police pursue several lines of inquiry. The dead woman was membership secretary at a prestigious private club so Havers goes undercover there to see what information she can glean. Lynley looks into identifying a young man who was apparently stalking Morag. Throughout, Lynley is having difficulty coming to grips with his impending fatherhood, fearing that his own dysfunctional family background will get in the way. Written by garykmcd

Lots of secrets, lots of suspects
15 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is the story of a woman found dead in a house in her chair. It appears that Morag committed suicide until Havers sees the dead woman and does not believe it is suicide. Later the coroner says she has marks on her head and rules it a homicide.

The Lynley series is good but sometimes it has so many characters it is hard to know who Lynley suspects as a murderer. A number of murders take place in this episode and they all seem related to the dead woman in the chair.

A rich man and his wife that own a spa seem to be the connection to the people getting murdered. A young man named Daniel is connected with these characters. He is brought in for questioning and Lynley turns this into a intimidating session. Daniel was adopted and is trying to find out more about s real mother.

So questioning this young man by police Daniel has no legal support or parent to look out for him.. The way Lynley questions Daniel is interesting. It shows how a innocent person that may have reasons to be angry with the people murdered could probably confess to something they did not do.It shows how a cop can intimidate,scare and tell the person they know they did it and why. It tells me if you get contacted by police for questioning it is better not to be alone.This is a fake technique police do to get confession and they do get confessions by fear and lies.

The whole story is interesting and many people have reasons to kill the murdered victims. Lynley is too busy to bother with his pregnant wife but because of his investigation and babies involved it gives him a better love for his unborn child and pregnant wife..
