DC Liz Rawton arrives at the station to find an envelope on her desk containing cut-up lingerie and rose petals. After the action-packed arrest of Joseph Anderson, a man suspected of organising lorry hijackings, Rawton receives a phone call asking if she liked her 'gift'. DC Duncan Lennox offers to let her stay at his house, and the two end up nearly kissing after a few drinks. Anderson abducts Rawton when she stops at a cash machine, and reveals that he is an associate of Brian Hill, a man she put away while she was with SO10. Anderson hands Rawton over to Hill, who is obsessed with her and takes her to a hotel room. An interview with another of Hill's associates reveals the name of the hotel, and CID and SO19 storm the room - but Hill jumps to his death rather than go to prison again.
