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
