Storyline

A woman is unconscious in hospital with serious head injuries following a late-night attack as she was walking near a sink-estate. Clues to the attacker are thin on the ground, until Hollis hands in an expensive shoulder-bag found in a street a couple of miles away. It's a long shot, but could the empty bag contain a vital clue?
