When the last piece of the jigsaw of past and present events is put into place by the inscrutable Inspector, he is revealed to be a fraud. On discovery of this, the family switch from guilty fear to righteous indignation and prepare to resume their lives as if nothing had happened – until they discover that the end of their ordeal is in reality only the beginning.
