Summary The cozy villages of Midsomer County reveal their most sinister secrets in these contemporary British television mysteries. The killings at Badger's Drift: The death of an elderly woman and the persistence of her lifelong friend draw Barnaby into a case that reveals the sordid side of this quaint village. Written in blood: Investigating the brutal murder of a Midsomer Worthy writer, Barnaby discovers that the victim had been living a fictitious life. Death of a hollow man: In Causton, Barnaby and his family take part in an amateur theatrical production of Amadeus that provides an abundance of real-life drama. Faithful unto death: When the wife of a wealthy local businessman disappears, Barnaby finds that Fawcett Green harbors a complex web of financial and romantic entanglements. Death in disguise: Barnaby needs all his wits about him as he investigates a string of deaths at a local New Age commune.
