Storyline

Barbara Havers is re-appointed to her rank of Detective Sergeant and she and Inspector Lynley are assigned to investigate the murder of Morag McNicholl. The killing was made to look like a suicide but it is clear she was killed by a blow to the head and that her wrists were slit after her death. The police also find a large amount of cash in the flat so they can rule out robbery as a motive. The police pursue several lines of inquiry. The dead woman was membership secretary at a prestigious private club so Havers goes undercover there to see what information she can glean. Lynley looks into identifying a young man who was apparently stalking Morag. Throughout, Lynley is having difficulty coming to grips with his impending fatherhood, fearing that his own dysfunctional family background will get in the way. Written by garykmcd

Havers goes undercover
22 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In "A Cry for Justice," a woman is found dead in an apparent suicide, but it is actually murder. The investigation leads to a homeless charity that a suspicious reporter is dogging, run by a former model (Jenny Agutter) and her husband.

The newly reinstated Havers goes undercover as a secretary at the charity so she can nose around. The bodies start piling up and Lynley and Havers are led into a web of human trafficking, blackmail, and kidnapping.

On the home front, Lynley isn't as enthusiastic as he should be about Helen's pregnancy.

Very good story with a lot of twists.

Nathaniel Parker does a great job as the tenacious Inspector Lynley, who in this episode, gets to show his tough side more than usual. And we get to see Havers a little "done up" for a change.

As usual, my only problem is the dull Helen (Lesley Vickerage). I still can't understand why they got married because I don't know what attracted him to her in the first place. I understand she is recast in 2005 due to Vickerage having a baby.

Very entertaining.
