Program Description

John Thaw plays a different kind of crimestopper in this contemporary thriller. As Harry Barnett, once a wealthy businessman, he finds himself completely out of luck and money -- and in a new position: waiter and off-season groundskeeper at a villa on the Greek island of Rhodes. Just when it seems life can't get any worse -- it does. Harry and Heather Mallender (Abigail Cruttenden), a young Englishwoman he's just met, are attacked by a masked figure; she disappears and Harry is left to piece together what little he knows and find Heather before it's too late.
