The team go to Afghanistan
9 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a soldier approaches Leo to ask that he deals with his brother's remains when they are repatriated from Afghanistan he is told that there won't be much they can do to identify those responsible as the evidence needed will be at the site the body was found. Leo decides that he will take the case on though… and that means going to Afghanistan. He planned to go alone but Nikki and Jack insist on going with him. The area the body was found is officially under Afghan control so there are no British troops to protect them; just a group of ex-military security contractors. It isn't long before they realise they are somewhere very dangerous; on the first night there the compound is attacked by Taliban insurgents; three of whom are captured. One of them is soon found dead; Nikki is convinced that he was murdered by the security team… if the men responsible for their safety are murderers they are in real danger!

This was an exciting end to the sixteenth season but the viewer does have to suspend their belief somewhat to believe the entire forensics department could just decamp to Afghanistan at a moments notice. If you can except that the story is pretty exciting; there is a good amount of action, frequent danger and some good twists. As the evidence is presented it is possible to figure out what is really happened but not too long before the team figures it out. I had feared that the solution would have been more cliché as the head of security constantly looked like a bad guy but ultimately the opposite was the truth. The romance between Leo and the project manager seemed a but rushed making me think it was just leading up to an emotional moment when she would be killed or implicated in a crime; once again I was wrong though… it was all leading up to a far more shocking conclusion, which I won't spoil here.
