Murder is in the air in the village of Midsomer Mallow as Barnaby and Troy investigate the death of Greg Tutt, who was shot through the heart. He was a member of the local bell ringers and a bit of the village lothario...展开who had recently been thrown out by his wife who was fed up with his womanizing. He also had an eye for Emma, engaged to Liam, who are both members of the bell-ringing team. In the mix is Reggie Barton who leads a group of villagers opposed to the bell ringers using the church as a hobby, especially after they have an impromptu concert to celebrate a big win at the track with their pooled funds. When a second bell ringer is killed, Barnaby finds himself trying to connect the recent deaths with church lore that had the vicar killed and dumped in the well by bell ringers over 100 years ago.
