In the absence of Reid, who has disappeared, Drake interviews the dead man's girlfriend Juniper Kohl and discovers that his jealous assistant Ezra Marvell stood to gain from his death whilst Jackson believes that his client, widowed Mrs Wakefield, also had the means and motive for murder.

Another great episode. From an Irish director that also directed such great shows as Peaky Blinders and a writer that has also written on Peaky Blinders. Hope they keep up the good work.
