Running from the killer of his single mother Margaret Wilde, eleven-year-old Adam is rescued by Vera though he can tell her nothing helpful except that he saw peacocks. Evidence suggests that the couple, perpetually on the move, were heading for Spain with a large sum of money. Margaret's married lover Bobby is the prime suspect but Vera is surprised when Adam points out Judge Tia Carmichael as a family friend though the judge claims not to know the Wildes. Her team discover that, years ago, Margaret changed her name from Carla Davies, having attacked the care home manager who abused her. She was defended by Tia Carmichael, then a barrister, who helped her change her identity, and a visit to the Carmichaels' home presents Vera with a surprising revelation. Written by
