The team investigates the murder of Ellen Merrick, a freelance journalist who is found dead in an alleyway. She was badly beaten and her throat was cut. She was having an affair with Dave McQueen, an editor for a major newspaper but he was a philanderer who had many affairs, including one with a Deputy Assistant Commissioner with the Met. Ellen was researching the Bangladeshi community in East London and was known to have recently had an argument with a white supremacist. Members of the local community are also reluctant to work with the police and one in particular has good reason not to. One of the team meets an untimely end.
