Show synopsis Edward Melnick died a natural death, or so everyone believed. Eisenmenger's problem, when he performed the PM to discover the cause of death, was that he couldn't find one. Yet there was no evidence of anything suspicious. Despite pressure to take the easy route, Eisenmenger stubbornly delves further and in doing so finds one curious and inexplicable fact. Beverley Wharton, meanwhile, is engaged in solving the problem of Anita Delorme whose head has been exploded by a shotgun blast, but did she or someone else pull the trigger? It becomes apparent that the answers to these two seemingly separate mysteries are inextricably linked and as Eisenmenger and Beverley seek answers, Helena, suffering torments of her own, is caught by the consequences of uncovering answers that others wish to lie hidden.
