A landowner is found dead in the stables of his estate, kicked to death by his horse. Daadh soon determines that the tragic accident was actually a murder. He has no difficulty finding people who bore grudges against the victim, but is unable to tie any of them to the crime. Any member of the victim's family could have done it, but the evidence is very scanty. Then the chief constable intervenes and decides that the law must run its full course because someone has to be found guilty!
