  • Some years after her wealthy father died of a heart attack confronting an intruder - who fled empty-handed - Vicky Anderson asks Sandra and the team to intervene, since clairvoyant Sebastian Carter, having supposedly communed with the dead man, claims he knew the assailant. Sandra is sceptical, feeling Carter is in league with the would-be burglar and using Vicky to get at what he wanted that night. The trail leads to Penny, Vicky's adopted sister, taken in by Anderson after her father died in prison serving a sentence for fraud, and Simon Beswick, the cell-mate, who tells the team he thinks Anderson was also guilty of fraud and the burglar a double-crossed partner-in-crime after the spoils. Sandra is still unsure if Carter is an accomplice or an innocent dupe though, when the case is closed, his interpretation of her father's feelings brings her closer to half-brother Tom.

  • Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman and the UCOS team reopen the case of Douglas Anderson who was found dead in his study more than a decade ago. The official cause of death was heart failure but the room he was in was ransacked and it's clear that someone else was there at the time of his death. The dead man's daughter, Vicky Anderson, claims to have new information in the case but the team is less than enthusiastic when they hear that her information has come from a self-described clairvoyant, Sebastian Carter. Anderson had made his fortune in Hong Kong and returned to the UK in 1997 at the end of British rule. He left under something of a cloud however and one of his colleagues, John Plummer, was imprisoned for embezzlement and died there some years later. Anderson adopted Plummer's daughter Penny. Jack Halford finds a way to break through the maze of information. Sandra meanwhile is still having trouble coming to terms with the fact that she has a half-brother.
