Storyline

Having recovered from his wounds Andy Dalziel returns to the fold just as Peter Pascoe is in the midst of an undercover operation trying to capture a serial killer. Peter corners the man who then jumps to his death but the only witness turns out to be Abbie Hallingsworth who was kidnapped 19 years before and presumed dead. More difficult however is that her kidnapper, Gus Mullavey, confessed to her murder and is still in prison, though now on his deathbed. Dalziel has a great deal of difficulty in accepting the situation and Abbie's family has mixed feelings about her return, especially one of her two brothers who is simply not prepared to accept her claim. DNA testing confirms her identity but the police soon have a murder investigation on their hands when Abbie is found dead. When they learn that one-third of the Hallingsworths' considerable family wealth was in trust for Abbie, they focus on Abbie's brother David as the most likely suspect. It turns out that nothing is as it seems,... Written by garykmcd

Brilliant as usual
3 December 2001 | by tracyfitzno1See all my reviews

I love Dalziel and Pascoe, Warren Clarke is a favourite of mine but I mainly tuned in to this episode cos my fave actress Amita Dhiri is in it. She was excellant as a Lancashire lass working with the working class Yorkshireman Dalziel.

Nice to see Nicola Walker, once again she was brilliant.

I wish they'd invite DC Kendall back to work with them again, maybe when Novello's on leave.
