Plot Edit

A teenage girl arrives at a house to babysit for a couple who are going to play tennis with two of their friends. Meanwhile, a house party goes on next door. The girl puts the baby to bed and turns out the lights. The next morning, the couple arrives back home to find the babysitter dead in a gruesome manner.

The police arrive, including Lewis and Hathaway, who tells the former that the murdered girl was Jessica Lake, aged eighteen. They go into the bedroom and meet Dr Hobson. The girl had been partly undressed, tied to bed by her wrists with rope, and smothered. The couple who live at the house, Nick and Honey Addams, tell Lewis that Jessica was not the original babysitter, but was recommended by Yasmin Randall when Randall was not available. Additionally, the Adams had meant to come home last night, but changed their plans and asked Jessica to stay over.

Lewis and Hathaway go to Southey College to find Yasmin Randall, who tells them that she was asked to stay behind at the ethology research lab by Dr Ezrin, her tutor. She also says that Jessica had a boyfriend, a Gideon Massey, and she was meant to be seeing him the night she died.

They find Gideon at the docks, and he tells them that Jessica lived in a squat that was formerly Boxgrove, a care home, where she had lived as a child. Hathaway looks in one of the boat sheds and finds rope possibly of the type used to restrain Jessica. Hathaway receives a message from the tech guys, who say Jessica had some voicemails off a woman called Marion, as well as some professional photographs of Jessica in bondage.
