When the body of haulage contractor John Shearwood is dragged from a river, the bruises on his knuckles suggest that his death was not suicide. His estranged wife, Stella, and brother Luke thought that he was in Dublin on business, but customs investigator Owen Preece tells Vera that John was working on his behalf to expose a smuggling racket by John's manager Mark Donovan. Donovan however was not at the murder scene at the time of death though both Stella and Billy, John's teenage son, a recovering drug addict, were in the vicinity. John was leading a double life with a girlfriend, Gemma Makins, though she turns out to be the mother of a young boy whom a drunken Billy once accidentally ran over and killed. But then Billy makes a startling confession, which eventually leads Vera to solving the case.
