However he visits Martin to demand the hand-over of a tape the group buried. With Annie off the case for personal reasons Banks and Helen visit the band, who are planning to reform and hear that Ian Bassett was due to give Matt an interview before he was murdered. Banks finds that both Jack and the band members close ranks when he mentions the tape, especially after Martin kills himself having given the tape to David Hornby, The police discover that the Crystal Kiss's moment has gone and that the killer was desperate to make money for a very dubious reunion, something which also involved Jack Barber. At the same time Banks' private life suffers upheaval when his daughter Tracy turns up unannounced, having dropped out of college. Written by don @ minifie-1

You Can't Go Home Again!
11 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There is so much infighting in the band that was a one hit wonder that it is amazing they accomplished anything. After their adolescent period, things go out of hand and one ended up dead. One of them sold his soul and this led to falling dominoes. There are players all over the place putting things in motion and actions that go back 25 years that have not been settled. But when the young journalist is killed, the son of the man running for police commissioner, it opens the entire can of worms. There are some sore points. One of the group pretty much sealed the death by getting greedy. The subplot involves Banks' continuing contact with Annie who is conflicted because of her daughter and her future. There is also the differences in their ages. We are also introduced to Banks' daughter who is probably going to be causing some turmoil in future episodes.
