By Michael Crompton.
Adapted from the book by Molly Lefebure.
The fifth episode continues the story of a courageous young woman working as an assistant to the internationally renowned Home Office pathologist, Mr Hardcastle, during the dark days of 1942 in wartime LONDON.
Based on the true story of Molly Lefebure, as described in her book, Murder On The Home Front.
The final story in this series is set at CHRISTMAS, but there's no respite for Molly and Hardcastle in their quest to solve the next grisly murder.
Hardcastle has been seriously injured in a bombing raid and is travelling to his brother's home to convalesce when he is asked to investigate the gruesome discovery of a body in a trunk at the left luggage office at Horsham train station.
The murder has remarkable similarities to an infamous murder case, which ultimately destroyed the reputation of Hardcastle's predecessor, Wilkinson.
Hardcastle is exhausted from the pressures of work and the emotional and physical strain of his bomb-blast injuries and Molly is furious that he is working when he should be resting but is someone deliberately taunting them?
