A body has sprouted in a front garden and Pc Joe Mason digs up evidence that suggests there were a few people who might have wanted to help the recently deceased male on his way out of this world. The dead man is Lesley Rumbold who, until he was shot dead, sold insurance and lived with wife Sonia (Susan Jameson – New Tricks). The grieving, newly-widowed Sonia tells Joe she thinks Ross Tilman murdered her husband because of he had a failed insurance claim. But Ross has an alibi: girlfriend Lynne Millwood.

That’s that, then – or it would have been, but Joe finds a photo that leads him to Lesley’s other life and his other wife. She’s Margaret Millwood (Gwyneth Powell – Echo Beach) – Lynne’s mother. And Lesley was Lynne’s father. Now the police are thinking that Lynne killed Lesley with Ross’s help because she discovered he was a bigamist. The real murderer is much closer to home, though. The police discover that Lynne told Lesley’s other wife, Sonia, all about his double life and she didn’t take the news at all well. In fact, she’s planning on using the gun again…
