Grace and Boyd interview Stanley Heath's son Jason,who tells them that his father and two other policeman were murdered for beating to death a suspect in custody some years earlier. It seems likely that that prisoner was Nicholson's father and Boyd becomes convinced that Nicholson knew the boys' murderer and shielded him,deliberately losing his reports. The team's concern for Sarah grows as Nicholson brings in two sinister detectives to spy on them. Gradually Boyd works out that crooked property developer George Barlow took the orphaned Nicholson under his wing and that Nicholson,out of loyalty,protected the murderer,who was close to Barlow. Boyd is able to use this to effect belated justice but is he too late to save Sarah?

Did You Know?
We are told that Sgt Heath was 35 in 1961 so would have been only 19 when WW2 ended, yet he wears 4 WW2 medal ribbons, extremely unlikely at best; one of the medals is the Defence Medal, which required 3 years' service; award of it to Heath is impossible. PC Edgerton, clearly even younger than Sgt Heath, has 5 WW2 medal ribbons which he could not possibly have earned. See more
