Storyline

DCI Lewis and the team investigate the apparent murder of a well-known rock musician, Jack Taylor. There are several possible suspects including Jack's brother Sam, who claims to have been home at the time of the killing but CCTV footage reveals otherwise; and Michael's girlfriend Amy Kirkland who saw him having sex with a groupie after the concern. Lewis also has to deal with her distraught daughter, Ellie, a fan of the dead musician. The pathologist's report reveals that he was killed by a blow to the head and not a fall down the stairs as it might at first have seemed. Written by garykmcd
