Taggart reads a book.
20 October 2006 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Cameron Friel arrives in Glasgow to attend a literary award hosted by Prof Maggi McLeish. At the ceremony Friel receives a bullet in an envelope which brings him to the attention of Taggart and the team.

Jake Koslewski returns from a charity mission to Romania to discover his wife, an alcohol counselor, has left him for George Proctor, a previous client. Jake is involved in translating Friel's manuscripts into Russian.

Friel's wife, an American, becomes the target of several attacks. First a sheep's head is found floating in their water tank. Then she becomes the victim of an acid attack.

Meanwhile two underworld figures are trying to discover the whereabouts of the van that Jake Koslewski drove to Romania.

After threatening his wife with legal action Jake's body is found in the back of the van and George Proctor flees the scene. He soon turns himself in to Taggart and confesses to murder. However, Dr Stephen Andrews discovers forensic evidence that completely contradicts the confession.

Jackei Reid is promoted to Sargeant in this episode which was screened over three nights. It is not the best Taggart that I have seen. Too many characters, too much dialogue and it feels like the writers were trying too hard.

However, the fact that Mark McManus is in it makes it worth watching.
