Lynley and a demoted Havers on a case
blanche-2 from United States
13 September 2012
Inspector Lynley (Nathaniel Parker) and his partner Havers (Sharon
Small) are "In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner" in this 2004 Inspector
As the story begins, Havers has been demoted for shooting a flare
pistol at a senior officer whom she believed had put a child in danger.
She's back in uniform and lucky not be directing traffic.
Lynley, meanwhile, investigates the murder of an ex-police officer's
daughter Nicole and another man, with whom she was camping. The man is
identified as Gerry Cole, though her parents claim she was seeing
The story gets more and more intricate as we learn that Nicole and her
roommate were working for an escort agency until just recently, when
they had quit and started their own agency. Since her father believes
she was killed in retaliation for putting someone away during his
career, Lynley manages to get Havers assigned to him so that she can go
through the files.
Havers, however, has a different idea and investigates on her own,
Really good mystery that includes another murder. blackmail. and theft.
As for suspects, take your pick: Julian's cousin, who is in love with
Julian, an author who has just risen to prominence, Julian himself, and
Julian's drunken and often violent father.
Nathaniel Parker is handsome as ever and very good as Lynley, who this
time loses it once or twice with the feisty Havers, well-played by
Sharon Small Havers really has some nerve in this episode as she
repeatedly defies Lynley in spite of hoping to get her old rank back.
