The perfectly preserved remains of a middle-aged man are discovered in a suitcase dredged from a London river. An unusual watch enables Sunny and Cassie to identify him as David Walker, a murder victim whose wife Tessa reported missing twenty-six years earlier. Cassie hopes that a pager found with the skeleton will reveal his most recent callers. She and Sunny travel to the Cotswolds to inform Tessa, a retiring policewoman, now married to Paul Nixon. Her son, Jason, does not take the news of his late father's murder well. Meanwhile hospital nurse Marion Kelsey and her placid husband Tony fall out with her less than devoted sister Elise over arrangements for her mother's eightieth birthday celebration. In Brighton, Barrister Colin Osborne, hoping to adopt a little girl, Flo, with his partner Simon, is approached by Flo's natural father Tyler wanting money. In Salisbury, ambitious school teacher Sara Mahmoud interviews for a post as headmistress.
