Plot Summary

  • Following an attempt to kill Stephen Fisher, Strickland summons the team to a secret meeting. He tells them that thirty years earlier he and Fisher were part of an intelligence group investigating the IRA but their source journalist Simon Bisley was killed in a hit-and-run and the investigation ended. Now others of the group are being murdered. Bisley had linked the IRA to a career criminal Carl Dillon who, according to Gerry's informant Tinker, has just recruited two assassins and a telling document which could incriminate Dillon was stolen from Bisley's office. However Brian believes that a rogue member of the former secret service team has a vested interest in stealing the document and silencing their colleagues over it, giving Strickland the means to go after them though the team is dissatisfied with the result.

  • DAC Strickland calls the UCOS team to a meeting in a parking lot to tell them of an attempt to kill Security Service official Stephen Fisher. He believes it's related to a secret investigation 30 years ago that ended with the death of a journalist, Simon Bisley. He thinks someone may be out to eliminate the members of that secret intelligence team - he was one of them - and wants UCOS to reopen the case into Bisley's still unsolved murder to see what they might turn up. They find the case file on Bisley's death to be quite thin but learn from one of Bisley's former colleagues that mobster Carl Dillon was selling drugs for the IRA and the money was going to sell weapons. The central question is why something that happened 30 years ago would suddenly become topical.
