8:30pm – Saturday, April 21 on ABC1
Miles and Chandler are on the hunt for Marcus Salter, who has mysteriously escaped from prison after being arrested for the murder of four people, including his half-brother Ben Salter.
Then another brutal crime is discovered. Only fifteen-year-old, overindulged Lola Emery has survived, the rest of her family murdered in their home, killed by hammer blows – apparently the same weapon used to kill tailor Ben and his assistants. And the trail of bloody footprints indicates the killer had a limp – just like Marcus.
Lola reveals her father and Marcus fell out over an unpaid bet, supporting the theory that money is the motivation for the murders. They finally track Marcus down, and put him back behind bars.
But more murders occur – three students are slaughtered in their house after self-righteous housemate Lara Lawrence leaves to get milk.
Chandler realises Buchan was right – the girls are the key. All three survivors arguably needed to be taught a lesson in humility. And someone feels compelled to do just that, punishing them by killing the people closest to them.
Once again, Buchan finds a case from the past that helps shed light on the identity of the killer.
But where is the killer now? Why does he feel this murderous need to teach ‘entitled’ girls a lesson? And who has he targeted as his next victim?
