Phryne investigates two suspicious deaths at an idyllic vineyard, where murder and hostile townsfolk combine to produce an especially thorny case.
Victim: Oskar Voigt
Client: Oskar Voigt
Case: Oskar Voigt hired Phryne to meet him at his family's winery, but he was dead when she arrived.
Murderer: Dr Bob Ryan
Outcome: Dr Ryan, Police Sergeant Clem Ford, and Valma Brightwell were detained (and presumably imprisoned)
Inside an unfinished area with only a single light, we see the feet of a person being dragged some place. An unseen person starts a fire. Oskar Voigt breathes in smoke then wake up just in time to see a hatch closing. He struggles to open the inside of the hatch, injuring his fingers.
"Let me out! Let me out!"
He pounds on the hatch, then coughs.
"No! No! Help!"
The camera pulls back, and we see that he is inside one of many identical casks. A bell tolls in the distance.
