High Society Murder X

PLOT

Police chief Franz Brandner, faced with two unexplained deaths in his otherwise quiet village, has not the slightest clue on how to proceed. The most recent is Eva Bachmair, a young and attractive woman who allegedly lost her life in a tragic accident. Then there is Hanna Wildgruber, who was found dead on a country road two years ago. Unwilling to believe in coincidence, Brandner turns to his friend, the expert psychologist Dr. Wendelin Winter, for help. On an impulse, Winter brings along his daughter Alexandra, a journalist who is in the midst of writing a series on single life. Alexandra is rapidly drawn into the emotional turmoil infecting the local population, inadvertently getting to know several of the villagers far more intimately than she would have liked to. Among them is Gustl Wildgruber, a loud, hot-tempered and wealthy farmer who has become even more unpleasant since the death of his wife – and who fails to notice that his housekeeper Moni is obviously in love with him. Alexandra and her father quickly discover that Wildgruber and his two sons have a secret. And why does the handsome village priest Sibelius seem so nervous? Bit by bit, Winter bores toward the truth hidden by the tight-knit community, soon finding himself on the track of cold-blooded murder.
