The Black Book is the second episode of the twelfth series of the popular ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders and originally aired on 26th March 2009.


Felicity Law auctions a painting by eighteenth century Midsomer artist Henry Hogson for £400,000, giving most of the money to Matilda Simms, who runs a therapeutic art school, inherited from her father. Felicity is murdered, as is a young thief who had stolen another Hogson, causing Matilda to confess that both paintings were forged by her father. A greedy gallery owner tries to blackmail the killer and is himself slain. All three victims were, variously and dangerously, in possession of the forger's notes, kept in The Black Book.
