Not even a vacation can stop Commander Adam Dalgliesh from ferreting out criminals in this made-for-TV mystery based on the novel by P.D. James. While recuperating after an injury, Dalgliesh (Roy Marsden) decides to take some time off and visit scenic Toynton Grange. But crime knows no holiday, and after three murders and two bizarre suicides rock the quiet village, Dalgliesh puts himself to work, and soon discovers a dark web of blackmail, death, and a secret trapped in a darkened tower near a cliff. The Black Tower also stars Pauline Collins and Art Malik.
