Telling Tales

Season 1, Episode 2

It was only after Jeanie Long's suicide hit the headlines that evidence came to light exonerating her for the murder of 15-year-old Abigail Mantel 11 years before. Jeanie had always insisted she was innocent but no one, including her own family, believed her. Vera sets out to retrospectively resolve the mystery of Abigail's murder, delving into the secrets and lies of a small community. In her inimitable style, Vera strips back the varnish disguising the truth, but not before the case takes a violent and unexpected turn with another -- potentially connected -- murder.
