Thanks to a Chief Superintendent who is obsessed with damage-limitation, Janet is charged with manslaughter though Annie makes sure that she gets off. A friend of the missing Leanne leads Alan to believe that Payne had a female accomplice to lure the girls into his car and Lucy is the obvious suspect, though she denies it, at the same time admitting she knew her husband was a killer. She also blackmails Maggie into paying for a lawyer for her though Maggie counters by ringing the press to explode the 'accomplice' story. Investigations show Lucy to have been the victim in a famous abuse case as a child and she is diagnosed as mentally ill and incapable of having a mind to murder. Alan must discover to what extent she really was involved in the killings and if she knows where to find Leanne, alive or dead. Written by

I'm recommending you for a transfer to my unit, East Yorkshire CID. You're ambitious, ruthless and amoral. Every team needs a player like that.
