Late for a Funeral
13 March 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Skulduggery below the waves and maybe even some stirrings of the Jaws theme.

Two bodies are found in the sea by Francine as she takes some tourists on a boat trip. Diver Terry Castleford who had his oxygen supply cut and the skeleton of Luftwaffe pilot Karl Scheringer whose aeroplane dived into the sea in World War Two.

Charlie Hungerford is hired by two German for a salvage operation on the plane. Some other people are also interested and have resorted to murder.

Bergerac things that there was something valuable on the plane. The pilot was under the command of someone high up in the Nazi government who was more interested in valuable artefacts.

Another adventure where Charlie and Francine who is Bergerac's girlfriend somehow become involved. At least there was nice adventure in this episode, it showed off the Jersey coastline.
