A bit of a
collector’s item this. Barnaby and Winter are investigating the murder of a star village cricketer when a familiar face turns up.
It’s Jones – Barnaby’s former sergeant and a regular on the series for 12 years until he left for a job in Brighton (where he appears to be an item with the pathologist once played by Tamzin Malleson). So why is he back in the county under an assumed name?
The answer is wrapped up in some reassuringly daft plotting. To give you an idea, the victim is killed by having high-speed cricket balls fired at him from a bowling machine. He’s not wearing any padding, but the drama is.
Winter and Barnaby investigate when Lower Pampling's star cricketer Leo Henderson is found dead after a match in the grounds, pummelled to death by cricket balls. Barnaby is surprised to see DS Jones undercover as one of Leo's team-mates, and his former colleague reveals he is working on suspected cases of match-fixing in the area, but things take an even more sinister turn when captain Fitz Theara is stabbed through the heart with a cricket stump.
