Taggart and the murdered private detective.
30 June 2006 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

While private detective, Tom Barrows searches for missing business man, Philip Chalmers he is savagely murdered in front of his son by a mysterious figure in a blue cape. Simon and his sister escape and by chance Micheal Jardine is first on the scene.

As the case develops so does Jardine's love life. Simon Chalmers copes with his grief by playing detective. But his suspicions are ignored by both his foster parents and his new friend, Micheal Jardine.

Meanwhile the dying Tom Barrows has left a message for the missing Philip Chalmer's wife. "Ginger bread men." Neither Edinburgh detective, Bobby Gault or Taggart can make sense of it.

Still in search of his father's murderer Simon continues to return to Betty's cottage. The last place his father was seen.

This is a 3 part movie and fans of vintage Taggart will not be disappointed.
