Storyline

Following the suicide of colleague Lizzie Fraser,whom he believes was scapegoated by police for a wrong decision,Leo comes to work in an angry,bitter mood. DI Connie James brings Leo,Harry and Nikki in following the brutal slaying of ex-SAS soldier Mick Francis,his daughter Jessie and her young son Luke at their farm shop during a robbery. Harry establishes a good rapport with the pregnant Connie but then Supt Byrne links the murders to that of Lizzie's sister Mary twelve years earlier and to that of several other unsolved murders in the intervening years. Byrne believes the killer is a drug-addicted woman known as the Wraith,working with a male accomplice. However,unknown to him a hooded white boy who was at the shop would seem to fit the bill.

One of the more brutal ones, but this is outstanding.
17 October 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

This features a wonderful, captivating opening, as Nikki gives a eulogy for her father, it's moving and soothing. Totally at odds with the grim discovery that awaits, we get some horrific deaths, a horrible crime scene, and a scene of genuine emotion, as a pregnant DI James sees the crime scene.

It's complicated to see the least, with two complex stories running side by side.

It's not going to be for everyone, because the material is very dark, one aspect in particular is very upsetting, but putting the tone to one side, I have to say this is a terrific, memorable episode, which is very well made, with a strong narrative.

If you can get through the grim opening, the rest of this episode is outstanding, Vincent Regan raises the bar when he appears, he's awesome.

Who is the wraith?
