Episode Detail: Inspector Lynley: A Suitable Vengence - Mystery!
Lynley and Helen's engagement-party weekend, a tense affair as it is, is further fouled by murder: The son-in-law of the Lynley country estate's manager is found dead in his nearby shop. At least the deceased is no longer part of one very dysfunctional household: His marriage was shaky, and his father-in-law (the prime suspect) couldn't stand him. There's little love lost between Lynley (Nathaniel Parker) and his heroin-addicted younger brother (Matthew Goode), either, and the detective positively detests his mother's lover (Peter Egan), a cancer researcher who was seeing her while her Lynley's father was still alive. Havers: Sharon Small. Helen: Lesley Vickerage. Lady Asherton: Gabrielle Drake.
