One hot summer afternoon, musician, Nigel Swannell is distracted from his regular afternoon stroll by a swarm of flies by a thick undergrowth of gorse. Further investigation leads him to a shocking discovery: a headless, handless corpse has been dumped in the middle of the bush. Chief Detective Inspector Hennessey and Sergeant Yellich are soon on the case. A mysterious silver Mercedes has been in the area and the victim's family turns out to have been in line for a considerable inheritance from his acid-tongued, colonial and exceptionally wealthy mother, Mrs. Tansey. As the investigation progresses it appears that the victim's estranged wife, business partner as well as his disapproving mother all have their own secrets to hide. . .
