Boyd finds that Veronica's co-worker who aided her flight is Jovan Petropecic, a friend of the family in the war - who got her to England - but is now using a dead Liverpudlian's passport. Boyd also pulls in a Bosnian café owner, Radovan Skedinic, whose phone number Veronica had and who was the broker in the Serbs' drug deals. Dr. Vaspovic agrees that he lost touch with his wife and son in the war, assuming they were murdered, which Eve confirms. Veronica - real name Anna - tells her Serb accomplices she has joined their gang because she believes it will lead her to the double agent who killed her mother and brother, whom she is convinced is Radovan. Boyd saves her from their kidnap attempt and she and her father watch as two unlikely conspirators are exposed. Boyd then sees his son's corpse and shows unusual emotion. Written by don @ minifie-1

User Reviews

A claustrophobic set of interrogations get to the truth
18 June 2019 | by hindsonevansmikeSee all my reviews

Boyd, front and centre but with excellent, knowledgeable, support from his team, digs through the layers of deceit and misdirection.

Records from the former republic of Yugoslavia provide the backdrop to a 1995 war crime in the Bosnian-Serb-Muslim war in that region. The evidence is slowly gathered, via a few misdirections, unmasking a pair of war criminals ripe for a one-way ticket to the IWT at The Hague.

Not the best ever, but a useful reminder that "nothing disappears for ever".
