Commissioner Patterson has always been bothered by an unsolved case from 1988 when he was a novice detective. Jasmine Springer was the wife of the lead singer of a rising reggae band on the island who were due to embark on a european tour. Her guitarist husband's Billy wild ways caused ructions, the group split and her dead body was found on the beach. An apparent mugging gone wrong.

30 years later the band have reunited. Billy Springer contacted Commissioner Patterson that he has some new leads regarding her wife's death. During the break at a gig Billy's body is found in a locked room.

Jack Mooney has to deal with a locked room mystery with only a bent fork as a clue. Mooney also has to deal with Dwayne's dad who has invited himself in.

The episode gives more substance to Commander Patterson, it is also a case where Mooney finds that progress is slow to everyone's frustrations.
