Called out to a shop robbery, PC Yvonne Hemmingway and PC Honey Harman return to the station empty handed: neither CCTV nor other evidence gives an indication where to start the enquiry. It becomes clear that things are not what meets the eye when DC Terry Perkins and DC Mickey Webb take on the investigation. Unexpectedly, the shop owner’s daughter comes forward with a tip-off about her father, and the case unfolds into a race against time. The team are not only searching for a heavily injured robber but also his firearm. Who is the victim and who is the criminal in this case?
Superintendent John Heaton is keen to continue his hard line on zero tolerance in the streets of Sun Hill and urges the PCs to make arrests in Penn Market; no offence is too petty.

Later, buried in work on his first day at Sun Hill, Matt can’t hide his annoyance when Emma reproaches him for not assisting PC Will Fletcher and Emma in a prosecution. Will asks why Matt has taken on a job at the police station where his girlfriend works. Emma wonders if she should trust her boyfriend or follow her heart.
