The skeletal remains of a dismembered body are discovered beneath the floorboards of a house in Glasgow. The drama takes an unexpected twist when a nine month old baby is kidnapped from a multi-story car park and a ransom note demanding 50,000 pounds is sent to the parents.

Inspector Taggart and Peter Livingstone soon discover that the two investigations may be linked.

This is the second episode of the Taggart series and introduces the music that became familiar to us for the next 2 decades! As usual the story line is complex and original and will keep you guessing right to the end. Mark McManus is Taggart and fans of the series will enjoy his extra dry wit and understated acting.
