DC Anne Oldman calls on inspector Jack Cloth, who has turned to drink after his wife's murder, and joins him in investigating a series of gruesome murders. Pensioner Albert Stafford, television chef Aiden Hawkchurch and his mistress Gavina Dunkish have all been brutally killed with a sword but a clue to the murderer's identity is provided by Aiden's widow Claire, who tells Cloth that they were all jurors who, in 1996, found Burton Bradstock guilty of killing his wife - and now Bradstock has just been released from prison.
