Midsomer Murders: Dark Autumn

A postman is murdered on his early morning rounds in the tiny hamlet of Goodman's Land. The brutal killing rocks the community where WPC Jay Nash is more used to dealing with traffic cones than slashed throats.
With Nash's help, Barnaby and Troy discover that the postman offered more than just a postal service to the female villagers and that there are several jealous husbands or jilted lovers who might have wanted him dead, but when a woman's body is found on the village green with the same horrific injuries, the motive doesn't seem quite so straightforward.
