Hazel Wallace returns from her training as the new Detective Sergeant. Supt. Mullett assigns her to sorting the mess left behind by DI Frost while he was on extended compassionate leave. Wallace's first case is a man found hanged in his home. She suspects the death was not suicide. A set of fingerprints at the scene belong to an unidentified man discovered drowned a year previously. Frost is summoned by Supt Mullett to sort things. He connects a painting that appears to have been stolen from the hanged man with an art robbery and murder several years earlier. Written by James D. Lankin

Lackluster by Still Entertaining Journey Into Illegal Art
21 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack Frost has retired. Mullett is doing everything he can to get a promotion and a vertical move. The problem is that Frost has left such a mess that the only way to straighten it out is to get him back to work. Knowing Mullett will be leaving if he gets the new job is just about enough motivation. Plus the notorious Appendix Man whose body was found in a pond in a previous episode has "resurfaced." There are impossibilities at work here. The main case has to do with a young gay man being hanged in his apartment. It appears a suicide but there is evidence to the contrary. A supposedly expensive painting has disappeared. This leads Jack into the world of art and the gay community. He is also renting from a gay chef who seems to have designs on him (which leads to a lot of discomfort for the principles). Anyway, this one seems a bit less successful. I've read that the previous episode was to have been the last, but it was brought back.
