Student Archie Rahman is stabbed to death and a library book taken out in the name of Becky Anderson found in his flat. Becky claims her friend Sally must have borrowed it and whilst the girls give each other alibis Becky later admits she was lying for Sally, who confesses to killing Archie after he drugged and raped her. The police learn that Archie was once suspended from school for sexual misconduct but evidence also points to Sally having known Archie for some while,rather than being the casual pick-up she claims, whilst the heavy influence of her racist father is another factor which throws doubt on Sally's innocence. Both of these will be exploited by the prosecution. Written by don @ minifie-1

James Steel: Natalie, please! We have to find something to prove this girl's lying, or were just gonna have to walk away.
Natalie Chandler: Well maybe you'd like to talk to the boys there, who as far as I know have been doing more than sitting on their backsides with their fingers in their ears for the past few weeks.
