To encourage more human interest stories, Don persuades Eddie to help water cress farmer David Mortimer, whose wife Rosemary has disappeared for a second time, and is being accused by other villagers of murdering her, to try and locate her. The trail leads to Dr. Knightley, her ex-doctor, in whom she confided about her husband's jealous, controlling nature and with whom she had a child, now nine years old and adopted. Eddie eventually finds Rosemary - but will she return to her husband? Written by don @ minifie-1
