Summary, etc.: The cozy villages of Midsomer County reval their most sinister secrets in these contemporary British television mysteries. [1. A talent for life] When the double murder of a feisty pensioner and a local Casanova lead to a plethora of suspects, the prime suspect is found frozen to death and police assume the case is closed, but Barnaby realizes something just doesn't fit -- [2. Death and dreams] In Midsomer Worthy, debt-ridden Martin Wroath is found shot to death, having apparently rigged up a way to trigger a shotgun with his toe. When rope mysteriously goes missing and two more victims are hanged, Barnaby follows the string of suspects to a horrifying conclusion -- [3. Painted in blood] Joyce Barnaby, enjoying an outdoor watercolor class in Midsomer Florey, discovers the body of a fellow student stabbed to death and two National Intelligence Squard agents quickly step in to take over the case, which strangely intersects with Barnaby's purse-snatching investigation -- [4. A tale of two hamlets] When wealthy young Larry Smith of the Smyth-Webster family is killed in an explosion, leading Barnaby and troy into a centuries-old feud between the villagers of Upper and Lower Warden Manor, the detectives begin to wonder just how far will this family go to protect its money and power -- [5. Birds of prey] Investment in a secret invention leads to an apparent suicide in Midsomer Magna. Then a villager who has been stealing peregrine falcon eggs from the inventor's wife is also found dead. Barnaby and troy investigate a possible link between the two strange cases.
