Ordeal by Innocence Plot: What is it about?

The theme of the story is based on a family, the Argylls. Surprisingly, one day, one of the family members is murdered. The story begins in the year 1954 when Rachel Argyle who is a Philanthropist, the mother of the family, and a wealthy woman becomes the murder victim of the story. All fingers are pointed at their adopted son, Jacko Argyll. She is murdered at their family estate Sunny Point, but his son who is a delinquent, and has committed minor crimes before and been arrested, is sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison. However, Jacko pleads to be innocent. The question is, if he is indeed not guilty and didn’t murder his mother, then who did? He ceaselessly protests that he is honest and it has to be someone else who took Rachel Argyll’s life.

Around 18 months later, Dr. Arthur Calgary, who is a scientist, comes back on a ferry across the Rubicon River and to Sunny Point, the Argyll family’s house. Walking on the lawns of Sunny Point, he claims that he had been away on an expedition to the Arctic, and he just returned from it. Things take a twist, and he surprises everyone, even more, when he claims to have an alibi, which would prove that Jacko is innocent, and he did not kill his mother. However, unfortunately, Dr Arthur Calgary was too late to save Jacko. Jacko dies in prison before he could come for the trials. Even though Jacko has died, Dr Arthur Calgary is determined to look into the case and find the answer. However, the Argyll family is very reluctant to go down the family history lane that would dig up some secrets from the past.

Meanwhile, Rachel Argyll’s widow husband, Leo Argyll is all set to marry his secretary Gwenda. All the other four children of Rachel Argyll and Leo Argyll, Mary, Mickey, Tina, and Hester are ready to dig up their family secrets. Everybody is acting secretive and are hesitant to be open about anything. Even their housekeeper, Kristen, who has served the family for ages, is unwilling to open any chapters that would lead up to some horrendous answers.

The theories Dr Arthur Calgary puts forward turn to be shocking and exciting, taking many twists and turns. His questions, methods, and trails are tough to avoid. The trails raise up some reasonable questions. If his implications are right, then Jacko was wrongly accused. Moreover, if Jacko is not the murderer, then it is someone from Sunny Point.

The Argyll children and Kirsten try to join the pieces that lead to Jack Confronting his mother about Tina and Mickey being lovers. In turn, he comes to know that Kirsten is his biological mother and Leo his father, which causes Jack to flee the house. Rachel discovers about Leo and Gwenda’s affair, and in the end, Leo confronts with the crime of killing Rachel.
