Frost investigates a robbery at a local casino and a hit and run accident that may involve Roger Massie, the son of a local Member of Parliament. Massie has previously been charged, but never convicted of reckless driving. Supt. Mullett is concerned that Frost is on a witch hunt but Frost soon realizes there is a connection between Massie and the casino, in the form of Massie's girlfriend, Julia King. Frost also receives a complaint about PC Shelby, who is accused of stealing jewelry but when Shelby turns up dead Frost must solve yet another complex puzzle. Written by
Did You Know?
Much is made of Roger Massie's car losing its rear license plate following the hit-and-run, with Frost deducing it was deliberately left behind. However, before the old man is run down, the car crashes into other parked vehicles and loses its front bumper, including the front license plate. Nothing is ever said about this nor does anyone attempt to investigate that part of the incident. As such, the issue of the rear license plate being left behind would be moot, as they would have the front license plate anyway. See more
