The Mystery of
Drayton is a small town with secrets. Lawyer James Crowe is desperate to get possession of Grange Drayton, and he tricks the owner into disinheriting his son Harold Drayton by accusing him of murdering his older brother’s son and heir. Lawyer Crowe intends to marry Dorothy Dalton, but she is engaged to Harold Drayton and is waiting for him to prove his innocence. Meanwhile, the lawyer’s sister is secretly embezzling her brother’s money. In the houses and cottages of Drayton things are not always what they seem on the outside. Into this web of dishonesty comes the Rev. Joseph Allgood, the new Wesleyan minister. Dorothy Dalton’s Aunt Kezekia wonders if anyone can really be “all good”!
