Sandra returns early from her Italian holiday to find the office in chaos and a new case waiting to be reopened: the murder of ten-year-old Jimmy Spencer at a golf club twenty years earlier. Teenaged suspect Ken Rodger, arrested for indecent exposure, killed himself in the cells after being charged with the murder, but policewoman Diane Loveless is convinced of Ken's innocence, and saliva found on Jimmy's clothes is not Ken's. For the sake of Ken's dying father and amid unwelcome press intrusion, the team take DNA samples from golf club members, revealing two skeletons in the cupboards of supposedly respectable citizens as well as the identity of Jimmy's real killer.

In order to get a DNA sample, the detectives take a lock of the dead suspect's hair that his father tells them his mother cut off as a keepsake. Only the root of a hair contains the owner's DNA, so a cut lock would be useless for this purpose as any competent police detective should know. See more »
