When the chef at Sergeant Lewis's favorite Greek restaurant is killed, the Greek community in Oxford closes ranks. As Morse and Lewis try to unravel the complicated case, they get little cooperation from the tightly knit community. Morse feels more at home with Oxford's other Greek connection-- the classical scholars--and discovers to his surprise that there could be a link between the two worlds and the murder. A videotape of a cultural tour to Greece provides a surprising clue to the mystery. Morse meets with his Oxford friend Jerome Hogg, who admits he knew the victim. Maria's baby is stolen from its carriage. Morse speaks with Randall Rees, the husband of TV reporter Friday Rees, who tells Morse he thinks the dead man was spying.
