Silent Witness: Brothers in Arms
When local farmer Phil Nelson dies after a fall under a combine harvester, Dr. Sam Ryan thinks the death is accidental. She changes her mind when an anonymous tip points to murder. The police quickly suspect Owen Johnson, a farm worker and former soldier, and Phil's wife. Then Ian Neal, a soldier who served in the military with Owen, is murdered. Forensic tests prove it was Neal who sent Sam information about Phil's death. But was Neal also trying to tell Sam about a crime from the past in the Irish village of Ballycoola? Sam's investigations take her to Marie Kavanaugh, an Irish woman who as a child witnessed the death of a young poacher. It's a death that links Owen and Neal with another soldier who has some useful friends and a determination that the past will remain buried.
