Storyline

Nessa gets an enigmatic phone message - "Is your secret safe?" - prompting her to surmise that the abductors of Kasim are the people who kidnapped her and Atika in Gaza eight years earlier. Hugo latches onto the fact that Nessa went missing at the time when he discovers that Ephra was running the foundation on her behalf and passes on to Ephra his awareness of the fact. Ephra's wife Rachel, not blind to her husband's infidelity with Atika, forces a DNA test to prove that he is Kasim's father but the test proves negative whilst the recovering Nathaniel establishes that there was a conspiracy to force the injured abductor, Michel Getz, to kill himself and, against Nessa's advice but supported by Frances, conducts his own investigation - to his cost.

Making progress
18 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The third episode of this series opens rather mysteriously; a woman climbs out of a car boot on a remote road and finds a large bag; it contains a lot of money and a one-word note "Silence", the car then drives off. We don't learn who she is until later in the episode. Back with familiar characters Nessa's bodyguard wakes up and makes a surprisingly fast recovery… he is soon investigating the kidnapping. The trail takes him first to the nurse who gave the phone to the now dead kidnapper and then leads to the kidnapper's sister… the woman we saw in the opening scene. Meanwhile the police are questioning the paternity of the kidnapped boy and briefly it looks as if his father could be Nessa's brother. Hugh Hayden-Hoyle is also continuing his investigation and finds out about Nessa's kidnapping; exposing a lie in the process.

After more and more questions were raised in the opening episodes it was nice to see the investigations progress slightly even if at this point we don't know what it all means; just why is what happened in Gaza seven years ago so important? The recovery of Nessa's bodyguard, Nathanial, did seem surprisingly fast but his investigations proved gripping and led to quite a shocking end to the episode. Tobias Menzies performs well in the role; putting in an understated performance that makes a change from the usual tough-guy type of bodyguard. Stephen Rea continues to impress as Hayden-Hoyle; bringing some welcome humour to the proceedings as he 'appears' before those he wishes to talk to. Overall another fine episode; the series continues to keep me gripped.
