Plot Summary: Prisoner Steven Hunt is serving nine months for Benefit Fraud, and he’s about to get out. The team are convinced he’s a serial killer, and set out to solve the murders he committed in the past. But with nothing other than coincidences and hunches can they prevent him from beginning a killing spree? Hunt is released and Boyd has him tailed. Under the noses of his police tail, Hunt drowns a girl at the local baths. There is no proof that he has done this so Boyd releases his name to a journalist hoping that media coverage will give the team something to work with.
