Storyline

Ex-colonel Gerard is poisoned after arguing with his nephew Edward. Edward is a former POW from Korea and the colonel claims he has been brain-washed but Edward sticks to his story that Gerard killed his father in order to marry his widow Ada. None of the household - including Ada's brother Rupert and his adopted daughter Jia-Li - seem upset at the colonel's death and each had a motive for murder. Then Father Brown is poisoned - hopefully he can recover in time to unmask the killer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Beware the soup.
17 July 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Colonel Gerard throws a party for his nephew Edward, who's returned home having been a prisoner of war in Korea. It's not a happy environment as the family dynamic is very unsettled, it's no wonder a murder follows.

A solid mystery, a pretty decent plot, which makes me recall an episode of Tales of the Unexpected, Fat Chance, where the modus operandi is also used.

Some definite humour throughout, with Mr Digby causing a few laughs. Emma Fielding very good as always. Some lovely costumes used throughout.

A solid mystery 7/10
