Storyline

Carter's school-teacher wife Alison is deliberately killed by a hit and run driver whilst posting his football pools. Alison had actually borrowed a coat from Judy, the French mistress, who consequently goes on the run as it was clear that she was the intended victim. On her trips to France with her class she had become involved with a gang for whom she would smuggle goods but has made it clear that she wanted out, hence the attempt to silence her. Regan has to find her before Crofts, the gang boss, gets to her. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

When the squad car is driving along the road, a yellow car which was nowhere to be seen in the side window suddenly appears and cuts in front of them (prompting Regan to sound the horn and shout at the driver). See more »
