Skeleton Title Shot

There’s an air raid on in London but despite that, a horrible murder is taking place. Nearly 30 years later, excavators find a skeleton in some old rubble. Officials are becoming a stumbling block for Strange’s investigation which only stirs him much further. In amongst the belonging of the deceased man was a key that could unlock some clues into the treachery that had unfolded. Strange finds a nazi connection to this mystery and the footprints lead him to a property owner businessman Mr Elleston. Adam has a personal connection to the pain of the war and any sympathiser are his worst enemies. The struggle is to find out about something that happened so long ago or is it too late.

Personal Synopsis

I love stories of World War II and this episode has just that. War profiteers have existed in the aftermath of every war in human history especially the great war that divided Europe. This story is entertaining for its twist of wartime espionage along with the mystery that eluded authorities or maybe not. It just shows you cannot bury your crimes expecting it to never be found out.
