The Home Coming

 

It is a day for celebration as William Oakington today returns to Oakington Hall after some four years away from home. The dinner in his honour is ruined when textiles entrepreneur Oscar Oakington, the head of the family, loses his temper over what appears to be a trivial matter. Later a stabbed body is found but who did commit the murder and why? All the suspects seem to have both a good alibi, and a good motive for an evil deed. Even Doctor Watson comes under the suspicion of murder in this family based country house whodunit that will test Sherlock Holmes to the limit.
