In 1997 Denise is now a detective inspector and married to Ray with a daughter Charlotte. She is investigating the rape and murder of Lauren Hinds but when DNA on Lauren is cross-checked it matches unknown samples found on Amy Reid twelve years earlier. This enables Holland's solicitor to push for an unsafe conviction and the man is released.Denise then has to admit to Ray that she planted evidence on Holland as she was convinced he killed Amy and wanted a conviction at any cost. Another night club bouncer is arrested for killing Lauren but he is impotent and could not have raped her,leading Denise to conclude that there was an accomplice. However she is subject to a hearing after her confession and demoted to sergeant,moving out of her house as Ray asks for a divorce.
