Having spent the night with Tim Williamson Marcella interviews Henry Gibson regarding the disappearance of prime suspect Matthew Neil, Yann's boyfriend, and becomes increasingly suspicious of Henry's reactions. Meanwhile Sylvie voices her own suspicions of Stuart Callaghan to Jason, who, in turn, is quizzed by Tim over the Barnes murder. Consequently Jason makes his own, near fatal, investigation, being saved by Marcella, though she almost jeopardizes the whole operation. Nonetheless her intuition and observation ultimately leads to the apprehension of the serial killer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


After the examination of May's body and the bite mark on Henry Gibson's shoulder, Marcella commented that May, a six year old girl, was missing a front tooth and had a crooked molar. However, the bite mark on Henry Gibson's shoulder shows only front teeth marks (incisors and possibly canines) with a large gap between top and bottom teeth - molars very rarely appear in bite marks left by adults let alone six year old children as they are at the back of the mouth.

Satisfying Conclusion
14 September 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I was pleased that the series ended with a solution to the crime and the apprehension of the criminal. That's as much as I will give away. This is a psychological series where the characters have all levels of fragility. Marcella is running around, carrying the pain of the death of her child, her failure to find the serial killer, her propensity for violent blackouts, and the guilt over committing an act that could lose her her career and even put her in jail. As things get sorted out, we are made privy to the utter contemptibility of the woman who leads the big land development corporation, her sick husband, their sycophantic employees. Even the violent death of her daughter never sways her from being a virago. Anyway, although there are some pretty far-fetched incidents at the end, we can be satisfied with the results. They also wisely didn't give Marcella a free pass because there are things she still has not confronted.
