DCI Barnaby and Sgt. Troy investigate the murder of Gregory Chambers who was killed when out in the woods mushrooming. He was one of four people who had recently inherited a portion of his employer's estate, principally a local hotel. With his death, his one-quarter share now passes to his wife, Suzanna, who has been having an affair with Tristan Goodfellow. It would also appear that Gregory was having an affair with Annie Salter, who is four months pregnant. When Tristan is poisoned with a type of mushroom known as Destroying Angel and the other inheritors of the estate are put at risk, Barnaby looks to find a common connection.

...and the kitchen staff can confirm that you were here?
...until 10:30, and then Julia Gooders can confirm I was in the meeting with her, so just when I was getting changed that I was alone - about 10 minutes.
Sergeant Gavin Troy
You didn't have any help from Mrs. Chambers then, sir?
Not on that particular occasions, but you're right, I do like Susan to undress me whenever possible. She's rather an expert.
