Rosaleen Cloade aka Eileen Corrigan is the only true murder despite there being three deaths in the novel.
Enoch Arden – actually – Charles Trenton, second cousin to Frances Cloade wasn’t murder but ‘an accident’
Major Porter commits suicide after perjuring himself.
Rowley also attempts to strange Lynn who then goes on the marry him (you can see why this is not one of my favourites)
David Hunter murders the womand posing as Rosaleen Cloade.
Rowley is responsible for the deaths of Trenton and Major Porter and tries to kill Lynn.
David hunter falls in love with Lynn and wants to marry her. He decides he needs to kill Rosaleen (aka Eileen Corrigan) his accomplis and former lover to be rid of her.
Poisoned (appears as an over dose)
