Here is a list of all of the suspects I have covered in this A to Z, with links.
***UPDATE: I see that Sue Ranscht has kindly also made a list of the suspects. Thank you Sue! To check out Sue’s list, look at her comment under Zoe’s Zodiac. It is in many cases more detailed than my list!***
Annabelle, Sir Adam’s second wife. Would much rather be married to Sir Adam’s brother Gregory.
Bruce, Sir Adam’s secretary. Isn’t really Bruce; he took a dead man’s identity in the Great War. Sir Adam is blackmailing him.
Cecil, Sir Adam’s old friend. They had a falling out, and Cecil was about to be evicted from the cottage he rented from Sir Adam.
Dr. Daniel, Sir Adam’s doctor and friend. He recently learned that Sir Adam was dying of cancer. Might he have decided to save him from months of slow dying?
Eli, Sir Adam’s daughter Ingrid’s intended. Sir Adam opposes the marriage because Eli is Jewish.
Freddie, Sir Adam’s neighbor. Freddie and Sir Adam had a falling out over the sale of some property.
Gregory, Sir Adam’s younger brother. Gregory wants to marry Meghan, but Sir Adam stands in the way of the union.
Hattie, Sir Adam’s niece. Sir Adam refused to help her open a hat shop, and was rude about it.
Ingrid, Sir Adam’s daughter (by his first wife). Ingrid wants to marry Eli, but without her father’s approval she will have to wait another two years. Also, she’ll be disinherited. Meanwhile, Sir Adam is trying to force her into marrying Quinton.
Josephine, Sir Adam’s mistress, wife of Freddie. Sir Adam has been ignoring her of late.
Kathy, a tenant on Sir Adam’s estate. Years ago, she killed her husband with poison. Might she have done it again?
Leonard, Sir Adam’s solicitor. He has been embezzling money from Sir Adam for years to pay a blackmailer. And Sir Adam was about to find him out.
Meghan, Sir Adam’s cousin, and his wife Annabelle’s unpaid companion. Wants to marry Gregory, but Sir Adam will expose her horrible secret if she does.
Nobody, in which the possibility of self-slaughter is mooted.
Ollie, Sir Adam’s illegitimate half-brother. Or is Sir Adam the illegitimate one?
Polly, Sir Adam’s neighbor. She is behind the poison-pen epidemic that has of late been plaguing the village of Clutterbuck Parva. Sir Adam was about to find her out.
Quinton, Sir Adam’s aristocratic neighbor. Sir Adam has discovered that Quinton is gay, and is using this knowledge to blackmail Quinton into paying court to Sir Adam’s daughter Ingrid.
Ravi, Sir Adam’s long-ago partner in scientific research. Sir Adam stole Ravi’s discovery and published it as his own.
Stella, Sir Adam’s first wife. A mystery writer. She is in the village under a pseudonym, secretly watching over the happiness of her daughter Ingrid.
Timothy, Sir Adam’s old friend. Timothy and Sir Adam are the last survivors of a valuable tontine.
Ulric, Sir Adam’s grumpy uncle. He lives in the moldering Elizabethan wing of the house and sulks.
The Vicar of Clutterbuck Parva, Sir Adam’s spiritual advisor. He and the deceased had a fierce quarrel, lately.
Wilhelmina, Sir Adam’s neighbor. An attractive young widow. Sir Adam has been harassing her with his unwanted attentions.
Xavier, Sir Adam’s cousin. Long ago, they loved the same girl. Now, Xavier has found evidence suggesting that Sir Adam may have murdered her.
Yuri, a stranger at the local inn. He believes that Sir Adam was with him on an ill-fated Himalayan expedition several years ago, and that Sir Adam ran off with the Yeti specimens he collected.
Zoe, Sir Adam’s neighbor. Astrologically inclined. She may have seen Sir Adam’s death in the stars.
