Synopsis

Midsomer Worthy Writers' Circle gather together to think of an author that could visit them and discuss their books. The name of this famous writer is Max Jennings, but the group's secretary Gerald Hadleigh seems far from happy. However Jennings is asked and astonishingly, given his fame, accepts; but the morning after the group meets Jennings, Gerald is found murdered. DCI Barnaby and Sergeant Troy try to delve into the private life of Hadleigh but their investigation is scuppered by the fact that Max Jennings has disappeared.
