Storyline

Kavanagh finds himself prosecuting a case for HM Customs. The case is anything but straightforward however. While 15 kilos of heroin was seized being smuggled in condemned meat, there is no physical or forensic evidence linking the drugs to any of the accused. One of them, Kevin Gregson, may have eliminated a witness in a previous case and he seems true to form when Kavanagh and his wife are threatened. Kavanagh suspects that not all is on the up an and as far as the evidence is concerned. Written by garykmcd

A difficult case for Kavanagh this time around...
16 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not the best of the series, but a good one. Here, Kavanagh faces one of his more difficult cases, concerning two drug dealers. What makes it complicated are the validity(or lack of it) of the evidence and that shifty Kevin Gregson has started threatening Kavanagh and his wife. Tightly constructed, with some good court room scenes, what benefits is the music and the acting. The music is hauntingly beautiful and poignant, and on the acting front John Thaw is excellent as always and Jonathan Phillips is perfect as shifty Gregson. Overall, good but not absolutely outstanding due to some characters that were rather underwritten. 8/10 Bethany Cox
