Adapted from Agatha Christie's book Five Little Pigs by the author, Go Back
for Murder tells the story of the young and feisty Carla, who, orphaned at
the tender age of five, discovers her mother was imprisoned for murdering her
father and determines to prove her innocence.
Before dying in prison for supposedly poisoning her husband fifteen years
ago, Caroline Crale wrote her daughter Carla that she was clearly innocent.
Carla, aided by Justin Fogg (a solicitor from the law firm who unsuccessfully
defended her mother), persuades those present that fatal day to return to the
scene when Aymas Crale is painting Elsa, his latest infatuation.

died in prison.
