Teenager Ellie Clayton is strangled on her way home from rehearsing a play with her drama group. A witness saw a blue car near the murder scene and next day a young man torches a blue car. Simon Harris,business partner of Ellie's Internet entrepreneur father Daniel,tells Banks he believes Ellie had a boyfriend unknown to the family though her friend Becca disputes this. Owen Pierce,director of the theatre group is arrested. His alibi is unreliable and a former girlfriend claims he is rough and possessive though Owen points the police to ex-group member Tyler Judd - the boy who burned the car. However Pierce is charged with murder and appears in court but a clever barrister highlights procedural errors and he is discharged. Written by don @ minifie-1
