  • A murder inside a prison takes Jane into a hostile and dangerous environment as she tries to help uncover the guilty party.

    When a murder takes place inside a prison, Jane Halifax (Rebecca Gibney) is asked to go to the site and try to help the authorities find out who the killer is. The focus is on a group of men already behind bars for murder, all of whom Jane diagnoses as sociopathic and totally without remorse of any kind. She finds herself wondering what the motive could possibly be and, in spite of her best resolve, frightened by her contact with these men who will clearly stop at nothing to get what they want, including taking hostages and committing murder if necessary.

    When a fire breaks out in the prison and all hell breaks loose, Jane is trapped alone with four men who have nothing to lose by killing her.

    The different setting of this episode makes it more watchable than it would otherwise have been. The script is weaker than usual but Rebecca Gibney can always be relied upon to lift the level of any production. Have a look for yourself and see what you think.moreless
