Exciting if a little far fetched
19 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When two women are found shot dead in a basement the first suspicions are that it was a sex crime or they had been trafficked; however a toxicology test showed that one of them had been killed with the poison from a fugu fish before being shot. This leads the investigation to a defence contractor who, when they check the inventory realise some of their stock is missing. Inter-cut with scenes of the investigation we see a woman being kidnapped and held captive; presumably by the same criminal. Tensions run higher than usual as the DCI in charge of the investigation is a former girlfriend of Jack; who he'd accused of tampering with evidence on a previous case. As the case progresses things get dangerous for the team and when they realise just what the criminals are doing nobody is safe! If that wasn't enough Harry has been hired to perform a second post mortem on a child whose mother has been accused of murder.

This was another enjoyable if somewhat far-fetched case. I liked how the opening episode provided a couple of very plausible reasons for the murders before giving us the real reason which was totally unconnected with the suggestions. We learn some of the people involved fairly early on which served to make the episode feel more like a procedural rather than a whodunit although there were still some surprising revelations at the end. Harry's side story wasn't bad but at times it felt like a distraction from the main story.
