Black Ice
15 January 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

DCI Stanhope needs to go through a fog of lies when a young woman, Faye Wakeland is deliberately run off the road. Stanhope knows her death was not an accident. Faye was seemingly popular with everyone but then she finds out that Faye could had been manipulative and had made enemies.

Not as gruesome as the previous episode with a charred body but Stanhope does finds fault with a community bobby who fails to spot a local loan shark who has a hold on the community who ensure he has a strong alibi. A more genteel episode with a nice twist or two to wrong foot the viewer.
