When Ronnie and Joe are called to a suicide it doesn’t take long for Ronnie to suspect foul play: Ranya Habib had no reason to kill herself. Although they are initially suspicious of a Dr Elsayed, recently arrived in the country to visit Ranya, they can’t find any evidence against him. Turning their attention back to Ranya’s family, they soon suspect Ranya’s son, Tariq (Dhaffer L’Abidine). However, as the evidence comes in, it all points to Tariq’s wife: Safia (Hara Yannas).
Safia eventually admits that she killed Ranya, but says that she didn’t mean to: it was in the heat of an argument and she refuses to say what the argument was about. Joe, however, thinks he knows: Dr Elsayed’s medical history includes the practice of FGM, female genital mutilation, on young girls – and he believes Ranya brought Elsayed over to perform FGM on Laila, Safia and Tariq’s daughter.
Appalled by this, Kate struggles to remain professional and jeopardises her entire career leaving Jake to prosecute the case alone.
