Storyline

Keith Rothwell,an unassuming accountant with an overbearing wife Mary, is dragged from the family home and his head blown off by a masked intruder. Nothing is stolen. However musician Pamela Jefferies comes forward to say that she knew Rothwell as her married lover, Robert Calvert. Banks is not pleased when he meets DCI Burgess,an arrogant colleague at police college. He is investigating possible corruption by MP Martin Fleming. Solicitor Daniel Norcliffe disappears and Burgess believes he may be a link between Fleming and Rothwell in a money laundering fiddle. Then Pamela is savagely attacked. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[It is early morning. Banks has just arrived at the scene of a brutal murder. Morton and the SOCOs are already there]
DI Helen Morton: You'll want overshoes, DCI Banks. It's like an abattoir in there. I have frontal lobe in my instep.
DCI Banks: As greetings go, DI Morton, I've had warmer.
DI Helen Morton: Morning.
DCI Banks: [ironically] I'm thinking of starting a campaign. Anyone convicted of a serious crime committed during anti-social hours automatically gets another five years added on to their sentence. I'm sure your husband would agree.
