- Program Description
This program opens with a minor fenderbender involving two women. One lets the other have it in the chops, then zips off in her red Alfa Romeo. The battered victim, Janet Fraser (Suzanne Maddock), asks Hetty to track down the attacker and demand an apology and compensation. Geoffrey's creative legwork takes him to a local garage, where he finds the red Alfa and the only witness, a marathoner who can't stand still. The perpetrator turns out to be Lillemor Pickering (Vivien Heilbron), wife of an influential business leader who just bought the city's soccer franchise. Hers is a sad story that threatens to spiral tragically out of control.
