Robbie finds an abandoned baby on the doorstep of wealthy Jack Revie, who is lying murdered indoors. Jack was something of a philanderer and his wife Joan claims that she had been to see his mistress whilst a girl called Lisa turns up to say that the baby is hers, fathered by Jack. Jack's son Jamie seems to have been indoors at the time of the murder but he was stoned out of his head and his dodgy friend Davy is on the run, whilst half a million pounds has gone from Jack's account.This is a puzzler indeed for Burke and his team.

Taggart finds a baby.
15 January 2010 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

As DI Ross leaves work to begin his holiday he finds an abandoned baby on the door step of a neighbor's house. When Ross investigates further he discovers a dead man lying on the kitchen floor in a pool of blood. Ross immediately cancels his holiday to help with the investigation.

The victim turns out to be Jack Revie, a retired businessman. DCI Burke discovers that the victims son, Jamie, was at home taking drugs while the murder was taking place. Joan Revie, the wife, was shopping in London and appears to have an alibi. Meanwhile Burke interviews a friend of Jamie's, Davy, who was also in the house that night and was overheard having an argument with the victim before he was murdered.

Meanwhile the victim's brother in law, Cassidy, reveals that Jack Revie was a often unfaithful to his wife. He insinuates that the abandoned baby may have been left by a distraught mistress.

Jackie Reid finds the mother of the baby. The team also uncovers evidence that half a million pounds is missing from the victim's account.

By the time the murderer is uncovered there are few surprises left. It is a story line that has been used before in other shows. However, that does not take from the quality of this show and its fine acting.
