Campbell admits to kerb crawling but claims to have met Kyle in the arcade by chance and sent him home whilst the dead boy is named as Andre Petri, who died of a heroin overdose and lived near the Heaths. His sister tells Annie that she was amazed how flush he was and it turns out that the arcade was the recruiting ground for under-age drug dealers. Banks suspects the leader is Chivers, a cab driver with previous convictions, who has disappeared with a female accomplice but Helen believes that Katy is not so innocent and is involved with Chivers to get Paul to pay a ransom which he will share with her. Annie shadows Paul as he delivers the money but loses him. Eventually Banks catches up with Chivers and finds that things are not as they first appeared to be. Written by don @ minifie-1

Things Aren't Always As They Seem
11 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

These two episodes show a kind of puzzle to police law enforcement. The people involved and the "victim" are pretty much known, but because of self-protection, details fail to drop. Morton has problems. Her eldest son is getting in trouble with the law. She tries to bond with the missing boy's mother, but she lacks the skills to make that happen. The persons we think of as suspects are much more complicated than originally thought. The conclusion is quite gripping.
