The victim, Mr. Turner, had a combative relationship with a rival named Hardcastle, so much so his will specifies his estranged sister, Francesca, should not sell the business to Hardcastle upon his death. Francesca is his heir but has little interest in the family business. The reason these two drifted so far away from one another is Francesca had an illegitimate child with Hardcastle, who refused to acknowledge the boy or any relationship with Francesca. The revelation of Mr. Turner’s sister having a child after falling in love with John Hardcastle, a family member who has been at odds with the Turners for generations, ends in tragedy for all involved.
