With Toby Gledhill's suicide, there is one less suspect in the mix. No one is quite sure why he killed himself, let alone in such a public manner, but most are putting it down to a breakdown of some sort. Chief Inspector Rickards continues to interview various suspects and possible witnesses and is starting to find holes in many of their alibis. Dalgliesh gets some interesting information about Caroline Amphlett including the fact that she has purchased a large boat and is stocking it for seems to be a long voyage. Her boyfriend, Jonathan Reeves, questions the wisdom of having provided her with an alibi. Ryan Blaney's daughter Theresa has an appendicitis attack and fearing that she might die, tells her father that she has something important that she must share with their parish priest.
