When the severed hand of a young male is found close to Harold Penton's estate, Hale is convinced that Penton is guilty of rape and murder, as the new forensic crime drama starring Tara Fitzgerald and Keith Allen continues. A wealthy business man, Penton is also a recluse and very keen to protect his privacy. His bodyguard, Jimmy West, does his best to prevent Hale from getting too close, insisting, along with Penton's doctor, that he is too ill to be questioned. Eve and the team use forensic evidence to move forward in their investigation and although they make a compelling discovery, they still struggle to prove who is responsible for the young male's death. Michael Byrne, Gary Lewis and Adam Kotz also star.
