Broadcast: Saturday 22nd January 1977 @ 8:30 p.m.
A former small-time crook, Jimmy Marsden, comes to see Edgar Fenton, an ex-CID who had left the force to set up his own investigative
business, on a personal matter. He wants Edgar to check up on his wife - she's been putting a lot of mileage on her car but says she hasn't gone
anywhere. Edgar follows her and finds that she's going to Brighton and meeting in a pub with someone called Vincent Crane, who owns a
hairdressing shop. The meeting appears more to do with business than a sexual liasion but when she is found later dead in her car, Fenton tries
to find the killer.
