Episode Chronology:

Long Term Investment is the 1391st episode of The Bill

Deakin and Kerry keep watch on a newly released kidnapper, hoping he will lead them straight to the £300,000 ransom he and an associate were paid for the safe return of their last victim. However, when the pair finally reach their safety deposit box, they find the money gone. Deakin discovers that the manager of the security depot is having a love affair with the girlfriend of one of the kidnappers, and that he may have been double crossed from the start. When the depot manager is stopped at the airport in possession of a quantity of drugs, Deakin seizes his chance to recover the money once and for all, by spinning a story which will lead him straight to the location of the hidden mother-load.
