Storyline

Nikki and Harry are called to the Dutch Embassy in the wake of a gunman killing three people,including police constable Barlow and the brother of ambassador Van Buren,though the latter officially died three years earlier. Van Buren's son Jacob went missing fifteen years earlier and now his grandson Jack is missing, Jack's mother Klara and young policeman Whitehead being among the wounded. Curiously the CCTV cameras were switched off at the time of the shooting but,recovering in hospital,Klara claims the murderer was Jacob. The news coverage has a strange effect on telephonist Mary Olivant,who is found hanged,though Leo finds the death suspicious. He is also wary when another pathologist,Sabiston,whom he once trained,is called in to carry out the post mortems at the ambassador's request. Written by don @ minifie-1

Embassy Shooting
4 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There is a gunman at the Dutch Embassy. Some have died and others are seriously wounded. The new ambassador is both obstructionist and then helpful when he realizes his daughter was seriously wounded. There is a history of violence toward this family. Most pressing is the disappearance of the young grandson. He has obviously been kidnapped. The Dutch have been doing some muscle flexing, keeping Harry and Nikki away from their people's bodies. They have focused mostly on the police officers who have died.
