This is the second episode of the second season of Taggart and was originally shown on February 9th, 1986.

Taggart and Peter Livingstone are called in to investigate when a woman's body is found weighted down with her own luggage at the bottom of a loch. She was last seen with her husband and a suitcase full of cash preparing for a flight to Switzerland.

This is not a brilliant episode of Taggart, particularly after the previous episode "Knife edge," which was outstanding. The writers often took 6 months to research and write the script often basing the story on real life events. So the disappointing end came as a surprise.

Taggart is credited for kick starting the careers of a number of big name actors. In this episode Alan Cumming is given a chance to show his potential. He later moved to Hollywood and appeared in Saturday Night Live and X men 2.

At the end of the day Mark McManus is Taggart and that is a good enough reason to watch this show.
