The nine-year-old skeleton of David Ackroyd is discovered in Thames mudflats. Ackroyd was clearly shot but in 1999 Luke Slade was convicted of his murder although no corpse was found and an unreliable witness claimed that Slade told him he had stabbed his victim. Whilst in jail Slade has become skilled in the law and wins himself a re-trial, putting James Steel's career on the line in the process. Fortunately for Steel, a visit to Slade's old cell-mate yields results. Written by

You don't reckon CPS got it wrong, do you?
Well, don't get ahead of yourself, mate. Hindsight makes things look very simple. If I knew nine years ago what I know now...
Well, I'd still be too stupid to do anything about it.
