Inspector Masters remains convinced that Sarah Quinn's murder is the work of someone other that the suspected serial killer they've arrested. Quinn may have been leading a secret life and may have been meeting a man when she was killed. His sense of the woman and of the case seem correct when he's approached by John Stockton who claims to be the man she was to meet the night she died. He also realizes that her marriage was not the ideal it was made out to be. Written by

When Inspector Masters takes Edward Brannel to the river to question him about Sarah Quin's murder and to stage a reconstruction, Chief Inspector Moore arrives and makes a disparaging comment "tales of the bloody riverbank". This is an allusion to the Canadian TV series Tales of the Riverbank
, but this was not made until 1959 and was first shown on British TV in 1960, whereas the action in this story takes place in 1954. See more
