HABEAS CORPUS - When wealthy landowner Gregory Lancaster's body goes missing on the night of his death, a sinister web of secrets and lies is exposed in the village of Little Malton. DCI Barnaby, DS Nelson and new Forensic Pathologist Dr. Kam Karimore are drawn into a macabre world of body snatching as they seek to identify the villain.
Gregory Lancaster dies of pneumonia, but when the undertakers arrive the body has vanished, even though his family was in the room below. Then the body of Lydia Dryfield, the family's former nanny, is dug up from its grave to disappear. Melissa Ackers, the vicar, is not popular with Mrs. Lancaster and her daughter Rose, who suspect an affair with Rose's boyfriend Craig Coffley while millionaire Sonny Desai, a childhood friend of Gregory's heir Felix, wants to buy the house from him. New pathologist Dr. Kam Karimore presents evidence incriminating both Craig and Felix, and Sonny's opportune appearance also puts him in the frame. When two, far from dead, people also disappear DCI Barnaby and DS Nelson must identify who claimed, on two occasions, Habeas Corpus.
