Storyline

Harry and Nikki deal with the case of a young woman who is found dead in an animal shelter. Her dead body has obviously been posed and the autopsy reveals she may have been tortured before death. Information from police intelligence suggests that they may be dealing with a group of radical animal rights activists. It all becomes quite personal for Harry when Nikki is taken prisoner. It's also a difficult time for Leo who has been asked to appear before a medical council hearing and testify on the propriety of a close friend's medical research. Harry has been offered a prestigious chair at an American university, but has had difficulty discussing the issue with his colleagues, especially Nikki. Written by garykmcd

Us versus Them
19 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This episode delves into the world of radical animal rights activists who are willing to kill people to get their point across. It's the age old question as to which species deserves to live. Harry and Nikki are in the field, putting their lives in danger. The key person who could save lives has taken a vow of silence. There are some really bad people on both sides of the issue, including overzealous police.
