Secret House Of Death, The (ITV 1996, Amanda Redman, Lucy Cohu)

In The Secret House of Death (broadcast under the Ruth Rendell Mysteries strand) divorcee Susan Townsend is getting over the recent departure of her cheating husband, her neighbour Louise, with problems of her own, is keen to talk to Susan about something but when Susan calls around to see her she is shocked to discover Louise and the man she was supposed to be having an affair dead. Susan’s husband, Bob, is devastated and Susan is more than a little pleased when he begins to rely on her for support but then she starts to have her suspicions about the true nature of Louise’s death.

All sinister secrets behind suburban closed doors, and with some pretty graphic and gruesome imagery that takes you a little by surprise unlike the twist which is quite easy to pick.
