I like the way this serpentine crime drama ties its heroine, semi-bent detective Nancy, in increasingly tortuous knots. She already has the problem of working a case where the missing murder witness, the one the whole of Brighton CID are searching for, is in fact her – something she has managed to keep secret, so far.
Now she suggests to her boss that to help crack the case maybe she, Nancy, could pretend to be a bent copper to win the trust of local villain Duncan Elliot (the satisfyingly old-school Geoff Bell) but not tell anyone else. Except, it turns out someone at the station is already in Elliot’s pocket. Wheels within wheels, but all very enjoyable.
As police comb the Le Saux haulage yard for clues, Nancy realises to her horror that she's left incriminating evidence at the scene. Worse follows when she learns her mother has gone missing from her psychiatric ward. In due course, as the shocking contents of the truck are revealed, the case seems close to being solved. However, Nancy knows there's more - and that the killer is still at large. Karla Crome, Robert James-Collier and Lindsey Coulson star.
