Solly Jackson,womanising lead vocalist with recently reformed band the Venerators, is found dead on stage with a bullet in his head. The other band members and his widow Avita all have an alibi,as does the mysterious female photographer Michelle,who turns out to be Solly's illegitimate daughter. Everybody assumes it is suicide - except Poole,whose suspicions are confirmed when somebody puts a snake in his bedroom at night. Using Michelle's photos he shows that one person's alibi was rigged and that,as far as the killer was concerned,the Venerators would be ensured greater success with a singer whose death guaranteed legendary status.

While DI Poole is interviewing one of the band members a Ball Python can be seen wrapped around the band members neck. While camera is focused on the snake you can clearly hear a rattle sound. Ball pythons do not have rattlers instead the sound is from a rattle snake. See more »


Officer Dwayne Myers: So what did he say about women?
DI Richard Poole: Solly sang about being a bit of a playboy. You know, man the hunter, women the prey. Every girl a flower waiting to be plucked, an uncharted map to be explored.
Officer Dwayne Myers: Yep, well, we get the picture, although strictly speaking, there's no such thing as an uncharted map. The whole point of cartography is to illuminate the unknown.
DI Richard Poole: It's poetry.
