'... a strangled shout was heard from the dining-room. Florence went into the room and found Edward Winchurch lying on the floor, an overturned glass of port on the table. Florence approached him and he went into a violent convulsion, his hands grasping the chair in apparent agony. He died a few minutes later.'
Charged with her husband's murder, Florence Winchurch is found guilty and hanged. But was she guilty? Many years later, Chief Inspector Wexford examines the evidence.
In the sixth of seven readings related to the preceding Bookshelf programme, Petra Davles reads this short story by the award-winning crime writer.

Yet there was about Apthorpe a sort of fundamental implaush bility. with PETER BALDWIN ALAN DUDLEY
