The words Banks hears at the briefing for his first big case after gaining promotion: "I assume you're all familiar with Operation Yewtree…" give him a sinking feeling. It's the coldest case possible – the 1967 rape of a young girl by a now elderly celebrity. But when he meets the victim, now a well-known poet, and hears her story, Banks is determined to see justice done. Meanwhile, Annie and Winsome are investigating the grisly murder of a teenage girl, who was thrown out of a moving van into a ditch in the middle of the night. Then, after walking naked, dirty, and injured down the road in search of help, she is beaten to death.
