Little Angel Jarvis disappears from her father's car, while he goes shopping for dinner. The police carry out a systematic search without finding the 6-year old girl, and Sergeant Merton fears the worst. The Jarvis' have been through a bitter divorce and Marie Jarvis accuses her ex-husband of being behind the child's disappearance himself. However a witness saw a girl matching Angel's description being let away by a woman she obviously knew. The discovery of Angel's shoes also points to Mrs. Jarvis' new boyfriend. Jenny asks the new super sleuths of Aidensfield, Blaketon and Ventress, to check out a new lead when her husband does not have the time to see her. Gina sees a rat in the kitchen of the Aidensfield Arms and Vernon Scripps, now an (instant) expert on vermin control, promises to get rid of it for her before the Council finds out. But the disposing of rats is easier said than done.
