The Halloween murder of a best-selling writer could have come straight from her own chillers. Jonathan is busy with an opera-singing stripper and a bath, so has Maddy learned enough about the illusory arts to solve this case alone?


2. Time Waits For Norman

First broadcast: Saturday 31st January 1998

Jonathan knows how a million pound painting was stolen. But after a bad review from the painting's owner, even a £50,000 reward and a begging Maddy can't persuade the moody magic man to tell.


4. The Problem At Gallows Gate (Part 1)

As Jonathan develops an unhealthy obsession with stockings and Maddy becomes infuriated with his s-less typewriter, they look as unlikely as the police to solve the killed-by-a-dead-man conundrum.


6. Mother Redcap

First broadcast: Saturday 28th February 1998

A high profile judge is killed despite his round-the-clock police protection. Could Maddy's gothic "pub of death" investigation hold the vital key?
