- Program Description
In addition to investigating a puzzling crime, Adam Dalgliesh, played by Roy Marsden, falls in love with a book publisher, played by Mel Martin. A corpse found floating in a dinghy at sea turns out to be that of crime writer Maurice Seton. The body has been horribly mutilated--its hands severed at the wrist. Investigating the bizarre death, Commander Adam Dalgliesh is drawn into an increasingly macabre murder case and a currency scam. In the coastal village where Seton lived, Dalgliesh discovers that the victim had more enemies than friends, and all of them have strong motives for wishing him dead. As the case takes hold, Dalgliesh's dedication to duty threatens a rekindled love affair and puts his girlfriend's life at risk. When Deborah returns to her hotel room, she discovers an intruder bent on robbery. Luker goes to Digby to try to persuade him to find the incriminating photographs. A vital clue is found in a marsh. Trapped in raging flood waters with the insane killer, Dalgliesh has to fight for his own life.
