Plot

According to the courts, Jacko Argyle bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker. Sentenced to life imprisonment, he died behind bars following a bout of pneumonia. Tragically, it was not until two years later that Dr Arthur Calgary came forward with the testimony that could have acquitted Jacko. Worse, the doctor's revelations were about to re-open old wounds in the family, increasing the likelihood that the real murderer would strike again...
