  • The team hunt for Smith and Tim as Meadows and Deakin try to get a confession from the boy's mother.

    Part 3 begins with the relief at Tim's house following his call for assistance at the end of Part 2.



    Meadows having taken the case on in the last part now faces pressure from Brownlow who suddenly appears from nowhere in this episode. Under pressure to get results Deakin takes a suspect to the car wash and proceeds to put his prisoner's head out the window to extract a confession (it fails, probably why it doesn't feature every week!).



    The hesitation at the end of the last part of facing another hostage situation is partially lost in this installment. Yes, another Sun Hill officer is missing in he clutches of those they are investigating, but we do not get any real interaction between the hostages and their kidnappers. There is none of the usual 'lets be friends with the weaker minded of the hostage takers to get away'. It's not integral to the story and is all the better for it.



    Eventually, Tim escapes and Smith is let free when the kidnappers demands cannot be met.



    A solid installment, with a nice twist at the end.....moreless
