DS Phil Hunter is listening to a radio in CID when he hears a call-out to a domestic. Phil pulls a school boy prank and rings DS Stuart Turner, who is working with DS Sam Nixon, telling him there a has been a call-out for a hostage situation instead and there are to stay away. Wanting a piece of the action, Stuart drags Sam to the scene and is livid when Sergeant Smithy and PC Honey Harman arrive and inform them it’s actually a domestic. Smithy is amused when he realises it was Phil’s doing and leaves the CID officers to sort it out. Sam swiftly deals with the problem; Toby Silver wants to see his daughter, Molly, on her birthday but her mother, Janine, won’t let him because he is drunk and mixing with the wrong crowd. Stuart is furious with Phil for tricking him and tells Sam that she doesn’t have the guts to get together properly with Phil as she knows deep down he’ll cheat on her a week or a month down the line…
Later, Phil gets onto his snout when DCI Jack Meadows hands him an old case – money from an airport raid last year has turned up in a bank. Four hundred grand in old and used notes were stolen and their prime suspect is Alec Vincent.

Phil tells Jack that he wants to search Vincent’s flat before he emigrates to Spain after winding up his affairs. Vincent is found to have 450,000 euros in his bank, and when Phil questions him about it, Vincent says he says he won the money on the horses. The investigation surprisingly leads them back to Toby Silver and they discover that Vincent paid Toby for his winning betting slip with the stolen cash. Sam and Phil race to Vincent’s house to arrest him and end up giving chase, Sam is thrown to the ground and Phil comes to her rescue.
