Synopsis: After the body of Rex Masters, a roguish, retired society photographer, is found in a weir, several people each produce a different will of his that appears to bequeath his fortune to them.

His solicitor, Jane Benbow, checks that the most recent one, that of his cleaner Janet Bailey, is the most recent and therefore the valid one.

His death occurs just as a long-estranged niece from America, Faith Alexander, arrives to meet him, surprising many of his acquaintances, as he had told them that she and her family had been killed in a plane crash.

Barnaby and Jones soon discover that the estrangement dates back many years, to an incident involving Masters and a local girl Lucy Thacker, who subsequently became a famous missionary, and was the mother of local resident Jeremy Thacker, who runs a small museum dedicated to her life, is the fiancé of Janet Bailey, and who has recently published a book appearing to denounce Masters..

Synopsis: King's Crystal, a family glassware business in Midsomer Magna, appears to suffer financial meltdown after the death in Shanghai of Alan King, one of its partners. Six months later, his widow Hilary marries his brother Charles, who is now running the company. The firm's accounts executive, Peter Baxter, is found murdered after a break-in at the now-closed factory. The now-redundant staff, led by Jack Tewson, are agitating for compensation for their stolen pensions. Alan's son Ian becomes increasingly moody, sullen and resentful, particularly to his mother Hilary and would-be girlfriend Sophie Baxter, daughter of the accounts executive. Barnaby asks Jones to use his Masonic connection to help the investigation to untangle the firm's financial irregularities. Barnaby is inspired by a performance of Hamlet in which Cully plays Ophelia, to see its parallels with the case..

Synopsis: This year's Midsomer Rocks Music Festival in Badger's Drift features the recently-reformed group Hired Gun, an old idol of Barnaby's; for the event, the band members are staying in the nearby mansion of Gary Cooper, the bass player and co-writer of their music, who grew up in the area. But the tensions that led to their earlier split are still present, and there is still the unanswered question of what happened to Ginger Foxton, a band member and the other co-writer, who disappeared 30 years previously, and his royalties. The disappearance was investigated by the now retired DI Owen Jenkins, who was Barnaby's superior officer when he was a sergeant. At the festival site Cully meets Hired Gun's new young manager, Simon Dixon, and there is instant mutual attraction, much to Barnaby's disapproval. But somebody is trying to kill the band members one by one, and Barnaby has to put aside his respect for the group to investigate who is responsible.
