When Bernard Lloyd is killed in his home workshop, Ash and Scribs have quite a few suspects to choose from. He was a particularly noisy neighbor, always working with his power tools. Bernard's wife Wendy is the initial suspect, but both investigating officers have their doubts. One neighbor is trying to sell their house and are having difficulty doing so because of the noise. Another is the neighborhood curmudgeon who doesn't seem to get along with anyone. It's only when the police find a body buried in the garden do they manage to solve the case.
