The Italian Rapscallion (#207Z) Duration: 47:03 STEREO

Emma Standish is opening her restaurant on the Ligurian coast of Italy, and Rosemary and Laura are way behind in their preparation of the surrounding garden. The ladies find the pace of life here is hard to hurry, and local fixer Fabrizio Biaggi insists a visit to the glorious Giardini Tremonti will inspire them all. Their guided tour is brought to an abrupt halt, however, when one of their party, Janice Alexander, is found dead, while the others indulge in the local food and wine. Fabrizio is arrested but Emma insists Rosemary and Laura must prove him innocent. Matters are further complicated when Dr Llewellyn's daughter Celia is discovered not to be the model she claims, but really practicing the 'oldest profession'. And the restaurant preparation is further interrupted when retired Foreign Office diplomat Sir Basil Slavinski is also found dead at the bottom of his cliff-top garden, with the Mediterranean lapping at his feet.

Why was Gemma Jackson posing as Rosemary Boxer to gain access to Engleton Park before she was found dead, and why has the once perfect Engleton garden become so blighted that it can no longer be open to the public?

Anglo-Saxon artifacts hold the clue but when Richard Earle, working on the same archaeological site as Gemma, is also murdered, the gardeners realize that someone is willing to pay a very high price for a piece of British history.
