They deploy rape counsellor Beth Latimer to comfort Trish, to the annoyance of Beth's husband Mark. Trish is finally interviewed by the police but confuses them by admitting to consensual sex with a total stranger earlier in the day of the crime. After the police have gone she receives a threatening text, telling her to keep quiet. Meanwhile newspaper editor Maggie finds her job under threat and turns to vicar Paul for help.

Stories Falling Apart
16 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The detectives are trying to keep things on an even keel as the community heats up. The party was a big one with lots of possible interactions. Even though Trish has not been identified, people have already guessed that she was raped. Meanwhile, a subplot has developed (or continued) as Mark continues to feel rage over the death of his son and his belief that the murderer has gotten away with the crime. He is a powder keg of angst and anger. Trish's husband reveals some startling news about his soon to be ex-wife. Trish has some sort of secret and she is hanging on to it, complicating things. Still, they must treat her with kid gloves. The dominoes are being set up well.
