Tragically, the master carpenter is killed and John is accused of the murder. As he gets closer to the truth further murders are committed and John’s life is in danger. John is helped along the way by new friend, Walter, the brother of a local seamstress, Katherine, who has caught John’s eye.
But will our hero survive and justice prevail? Will John win the heart of a good Chesterfield lass? Come and see for yourself.
