John Burden’s hero, the rock star Zeno, comes to Kingsmarkham to perform at the Sunday’s Festival. The event passes peacefully until a young woman is found murdered. Why was the dead girl wearing someone else’s clothes? And could a secret relationship have led to her death?…

  • The music for Zeno’s song, Let-Me-Believe, was written by Brian and Warren Bennett with lyrics by Ruth Rendell’s late cousin, Michael Richards. Warren Bennett provided the vocals and the other members of Zeno’s band are: Brian Bennett (drums), Ray Minhinnett (Guitar) and Mark Griffiths (keyboards).
  • The Sundays Festival was shot on location at Knebworth in June 1990.
  • George Baker: We’ve had a lot of fun with Wexford’s clothes. I persuaded the wardrobe department to let me use one of my old suits, because all Wexford’s suits are supposed to be rumpled and he always keeps a book in his pocket. So, I threw one of my suits on the floor and walked over it for the next month. Now it looks just right.
