In The Blink of An Eye (Episode #120H)

KQED 9: Thu, Feb 14, 2019 -- 10:30 PM

Lynley and Havers investigate the death of paparazzo photographer Peter Rooker, who was found beaten and shot in Soho, London. They discover that he had an appointment the following day with national tabloid editor, Melissa Booth, who tells them not only that he was an old flame but also that he used to be a war photographer, but changed after he went to Bosnia. Was Melissa's husband jealous, or is the key Rookers guardianship of a young Bosnian woman called Nina, who brandishes a gun at DC Nkata and who works at Number 19, the Soho club run by ex-paratrooper Michael Wren where Rooker was seen shortly before he died. The mystery leads them all the way to a massacre in Bosnia in 1995, and brings tragedy for Lynley when Helen gets involved in the investigation.

One Guilty Deed (Episode #118H)

KQED 9: Fri, Feb 1, 2019 -- 4:30 AM

Lynley is reinstated. Lynley, Havers and colleague Detective Constable Winston Nkata have been trying to catch crime boss Michael Shand, but their star witness Roger Pollard is found shot dead on the tidal flats of the Essex marshes. They go to investigate and Havers discovers that he was found on the grounds of the holiday camp that she used to visit on family holidays as a child. They investigate why the witness (who was supposed to be under protection) was in an area where he was well known. This was practically suicide as it would be easy for Shand to find him. Havers rediscovers Nicky Warren, a girl whom she remembers from her hoildays. When Nicky tells her about an unsolved murder of a young child 20 years ago, Havers becomes convinced that investigating the child murder will lead her to the answers she needs to solve the current murder mystery.
