Morse takes a shine to fellow choir member Anne Stavely. He is shattered when she is found dead in her home--apparently from suicide. The pathologist reveals that Anne was pregnant when she died. Morse's instincts tell him it's not the suicide it appears to be. Several suspects emerge including: George Jackson, an unpleasant peeping Tom who shows an unhealthy interest in Anne's private life and Patrick, a neurotic young music student who had a curiously dependent relationship with Anne.
