WS Maugham

World War One hero Maurice Tabret is disabled after a flying accident, tended lovingly at home by his mother, his beautiful wife Stella and a devoted Nurse. When Maurice dies from an overdose during the night, and it is revealed that Stella is in love with his brother Colin and is expecting a baby, questions begin to be raised as to whether his death was murder or suicide.
