A skeleton discovered in a building due for demolition leads detectives Cassie Stuart and Sunny Khan into the death of young Jimmy Sullivan, who disappeared in 1976. The final entries in Jimmy's diary contain several names, each of which could be his murderer. These will prove to be Lizzie Wilton, an inspirational youth leader and football coach, married to second generation Jamaican Ray, Sir Philip Cross, a self-made millionaire and government tsar in line for a peerage, wheelchair-bound retired book-keeper Eric Slater, who looks after his wife Claire, a dementia sufferer, and Father Robert Greaves, who, at the time of Jimmy's death, was working in the local church. All four live in different parts of the country and are apparently unknown to each other. Written by don @ minifie-1

When DCI Cassie Stuart finds the ignition key, Kelly the forensic technician tells her that "the ignition key wasn't invented until 1949" and that the key must date from after this year. This is not true. Ignition keys had existed long before that, even though it was only in 1949 that Chrysler first combined the ignition switch with the starter-motor control. See more »

Brilliant, excellent writing, first class acting
14 June 2019 | by fourwinds4See all my reviews

Binge watched the entire first series; the acting just held me spellbound as did the excellent writing. It is rather dark but thankfully doesn't do what most American shows do which is.. that's all there is. The story is riveting, the production first class and the acting just outstanding. An array of solid English actors who just couldn't be better from Tom Courtenay to Nicola Walker, Bernard Hill to Trevor Eve and Gemma Jones to Hannah Gordon. Thank you you all. Starting the second series now.
