Storyline

Over 30 years into her sentence for the murder of her lover's wife, Cissy Kohler claims she was coerced into a false confession. When she is released, she is in protective custody while Dalziel and his comatose former boss are being investigated for their roles in the conviction. Among the discoveries: faked deaths, a book purchased just to be suppressed, blackmail, treachery in the espionage department, and another murder. Dalziel wants the truth, but he also wants to be vindicated in Kohler's case. Can he have both? Written by jeaneva

Above average mystery.

Pamela Westropp was murdered thirty years ago, Cissy Koler was convicted for her murder. After all that time she claims she was forced into a confession. Andy makes initial enquiries, but is told to stay away from the case, as old rival DCI Hillier is brought in. Andy is given warning messages from thugs and seemingly Hillier as he begins uncovering the truth.

It's not my favourite episode if I'm honest, I find it a bit slow, and a little hard to follow, that said it is very well acted, Shirley Anne Field and Danny Webb are both particularly good, and it ends rather well, it's an interesting conclusion, and Leslie Phillips does a good job.

6/10
