Robbie dies when the Osgoods' house is set on fire. Chief suspect is McCready's nephew Gary but he has an alibi. Soon afterwards the body of an unidentified man is found in the same spot as Katrin was and, following information given by Shane Harris, Anika's drug dealer, Banks discovers that the man was one of several Eastern European slave workers held captive by McCready - including Anika, who is released. McCready and his mother deny any involvement in the fire, however, requiring Banks to identify the arsonist and whether they also killed Katrin. Written by don @ minifie-1

Only the Lonely
12 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

They get their man (and their woman). When it comes to the evil being done to the disenfranchised, we can't always give them justice. The world is cruel and it doesn't follow the rules we would like it to. A type of slave labor group has been enlisted by a truly evil man. An autistic boy is made to pay a price for something he didn't do. Choices are made that can never be reversed. Banks and Morton work some things out when she keeps up a dogged investigation into the character of the aforementioned boy. This is a complex episode.
