Taggart and the dead gumshoe.
14 November 2009 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

The episode opens with private detective Andrew MacHendry lying dead at the bottom of a quarry. His baby son is crying distressed in the car. It is a familiar place for suicides but DCI Burke soon realizes it a brutal murder. The team initially suspect the live in girlfriend who has lied about her whereabouts. However, the team investigates MacHendry's last case and a number of leads open up.

Alex Sternwood had employed the PI to find his missing daughter. DC Stuart Fraser breaks open the case by finding the victim's mobile phone in a disused factory.

This episode is a copy of several Hollywood shows. However the acting is quite good and I found myself involved right to the end despite several De Ja Vu moments.
