Assuming it was.
Your pal ripped me off. Look at him now.
I'm a grass, Nic, I've threw away everything I ever stood for
just for you. You're putting me and this baby in danger.
Nic wouldn't be here if you hadn't upset her.
She threw you out then, and now I'm throwing you out. Gabriel!
Interview commences with Mr Peter Marsden
and his representative at 15:02 hours.
Any last words?
CAR DOORS THUD
We can trust Danny.
He'll say we were in his club all night.
And the boatshed?
I'll see there's nothing there.
We've just got to stick to our story.
Leave it to the polis to prove different.
Right, well, that's them dealt with.
What about Pedro's people?
They're going to want answers, Billy.
Especially when they find out about Gareth.
What do you want me to say, Lenny?
I got the guy wrong, OK?
But he's not gonnae be seen again. My man will see to that.
Far as anybody's concerned, he's done a bolt down the road.
Let me make a few calls, eh?
Right, that's for me.
I'll meet you back here later.
What did he mean?
Gareth - about Matty Rhodes?
Said you had him killed. Did you?
Why would I be bothered with a ned like Rhodes? Eh?
I'm just wondering why he would say something like that.
Maybe he thought it meant something.
How should I know?
The boy was about to meet his maker.
He was probably playing with your heid.
Putting off what was coming next.
Anyway, you should be grateful what Gareth gave them wasn't enough.
Otherwise we'd both be in the poky by now.
I'll see you later.
GARETH: I've done nothing but protect you.
You just don't see it, Lenny!
He's no' your partner.
GUNSHOT He's your boss.
So, when Gareth left here, where was he going?
I don't know.
Nicole, I need you to think - is there anywhere Gareth would go?
I don't know.
I was asleep.
All I know is I woke up and this was here.
So he obviously came to see us.
So you didn't speak to him at all?
That's all for now.
Do you think he's OK?
You get some rest. Don't you worry.
Have you seen the time? Why didn't you wake me?
I did. I knocked. You were sparked out.
I thought you could do with...
But what about the hospital?
Hey, we'll get there.
I suppose I did go straight up and crash out last night.
Did you sleep OK? Yep. Like a log.
Big fan of sofas, me.
Look, will you forget that? Billy's not coming back.
No' with me here.
Look, I tell you what, why don't you go and get ready,
or do whatever it is you women do? I just need to nip out.
OK, I'll be ready in 15.
Aye, and the rest.
I said 15. See you then.
OK, time code 16:16.
OK, hold it there.
Why's he wearing that?
Yeah, if he's going to see his girlfriend and her baby
at the hospital,
why has he stopped to put on a suit and tie?
All right, play on.
Who's he talking to there?
I'll look into it.
DS Grant, anything?
No, Nicole didn't speak to him.
She was asleep.
OK, run it on.
WILL CLEARS THROAT
Time sequence puts this at 16:23.
Which was precisely when I called him.
What exactly did he say?
That he thought Billy was a threat to Nicole.
And meant to put a stop to it.
Do you really think he'll go after Kennedy?
Unless you can think of another way of achieving that.
That's Kennedy's car.
What the hell is he playing at, getting into Billy's car?
Hold it there.
Yeah, what is it?
I'm not sure. That was front desk.
Marsden's lawyer's downstairs.
You think they're ready to trade Kennedy?
I wouldn't bet on it. This isn't the duty brief.
It's Paul Malick.
Mr Malick, this is Detective Sergeant Grant.
Mr Paul Malick.
I've clearly been pursuing the wrong class of villain.
I don't represent the villains, Detective Chief Inspector.
Of course not.
All your clients are as innocent as the day is long, I'm sure...
I understand you're representing Mr Marsden.
Known to his friends as Pedro.
A harmless nickname.
However you should be aware my client informs me
he doesn't wish to answer any further police questions.
Nor is that likely to change in the immediate future.
He told you that, did he? Or did you tell him?
If it should alter, I'll inform you.
Meantime we're putting in an application for bail.
You're not serious?
Perfectly so, Detective Sergeant.
Mr Marsden's passport has been confiscated.
He's no threat to the public.
Mr Malick, your client was caught
in possession of a large quantity of uncut heroin.
I've read the charge sheet.
And if that doesn't merit detention, how about culpable homicide?
That supply line's responsible for at least seven deaths.
And, as I will argue, Mr Marsden is a respectable businessman.
There were any number of reasons for his being where he was
when you arrested him. Really?
He wouldn't be the first honest citizen
gulled into arranging transit
for goods he believed to be something else entirely.
Unless you have evidence to the contrary.
In which case I'm sure you'll accede to a request for full disclosure
of your investigation thus far.
Why not? I'll be happy to.
Just as soon as we're ready.
And when will that be?
When you actually have the man
you set out to arrest in the first place?
Let's cut through this, shall we?
Marsden says that you pressed him to incriminate others
in return for a lighter sentence.
Now, that suggests that he's no more than a minor player.
So either you allow disclosure to prove otherwise,
or that is the argument I'll be putting forward to a bail hearing.
Well, I'm afraid you have had a wasted journey, Mr Malick.
Because Mr Marsden's continued detention
is integral to my investigation.
And that's the argument I'll be putting forward.
Did he really think we'd go for it?
We disclose, and they'll know we've an informant.
They already know that. What they don't know is who,
or how much they've given us.
Whoever Malick's dealing with in Spain
has already lost a valuable shipment.
They now need to get to Gareth
to find out how much more they stand to lose.
But we have to get to him first.
Unless we're already too late.
Aye, she's OK.
She's just had her baby. A wee girl.
Aw, a wee lassie, oh, that's lovely!
Aye, she's a wee cracker.
Mother and child are both doing really well.
Oh, that's fantastic news. I'm thrilled for you, Gabriel.
Gabriel's got some news.
Nicole, she's had her baby.
I'm pleased for her.
I've just thought of something, Gabriel,
that makes you the closest thing that baby'll have to a grandpa.
Well, I don't really see myself as grandad material, Molly,
but aye, suppose you're right. Och, you'll be brilliant at it.
All weans love their grandpa.
Takes a rare talent to mess that up.
I'll be on my way. Give my love to Nicole.
And Gareth of course.
Actually, you got a minute?
So, what's on your mind?
I want to know what's going on between Billy and Gareth.
Who says anything is?
Lenny, Billy was in Leyla's house again yesterday.
He stuck a knife with a picture of Gareth into her door.
Now, I don't know about you,
but that tells me something's no' quite right.
And anyway, that's just for starters.
The creep was there when Zinnie got back.
Scared the poor lassie to death!
And now I've got polis outside Nicole's room at the hospital.
You know I reckon if Billy cannae get him,
he's gonnae take it out on her.
Well, where is Gareth?
How would I know?
He works for you! Not any more, he disnae.
Boy came in yesterday, said he was for the off.
Did he say where?
He's headstrong. If I hear anything, I'll let you know.
Well, I cannae say I'm no' glad.
And it gives Nicole a fresh start.
But then that leaves that nutter Kennedy.
I'm telling you, Lenny, either you put him straight or I will!
You do nothing of the kind.
What am I meant to do, just take it?
What if it was your family the guy was menacing?
You listen to me,
you do not take on Billy Kennedy.
I'll deal with him.
You do that.
I'll give your best to Nicole, shall I?
Wish her and the baby well.
Grant. All right, where are we at with his phone?
WILL: How serious?
I've spoken to the phone company. There was no GPS signal.
And the last call to him, before yours,
came from an unregistered number.
In other words, we've no way of showing it was Kennedy calling him.
Assuming it was.
OK, can you hold? Thanks.
Yeah, what is it?
Kennedy's boat shed's gone up in flames. Oh, you're kidding me!
The fire service say it's a four-tender blaze.
So by the time they extinguish it, there's not going to be a lot left.
What about bodies? Anybody in there?
It's too fierce to say.
But, if there was anyone in there, it's unlikely they'd be alive.
Let the fire service know THAT is now our priority.
As soon as they know anything, I want to know. Sir.
Where will you be, sir?
Me? I've just been landed with a press conference.
I've to go and agree a statement with media liaison.
We've to laud our great victory yesterday.
I wonder if O'Connor sees it that way.
If the DCI had pulled Gareth out when we said,
we wouldn't be in this mess.
He did. It was Gareth's decision to ignore police advice.
All right, but it still doesn't change the fact
it's our job to protect him, though.
You wanted to see me? Aye.
Shut the door.
This Matty Rhodes thing...
What am I not getting?
Depends why you're asking...
What do you mean?
Look, Lenny, I don't know what went down with you and him.
I don't want to know.
As far as I'm concerned, that's your business.
What are you on about?
I just, er, want to keep out of it, all right?
Out of what?
Behave yourself. It's me you're talking to.
We both know that he didn't stick that needle into himself.
What makes you say that?
I've seen enough junkies.
I was this close to him.
And remember, it was me that smashed his arm up.
And there was no track marks on it.
He wasn't a user.
Somebody done him in?
Like I say, none of my business.
You think it was me? Aye.
Nah, I didn't kill him, Jimmy.
I don't get it, I mean...
if it wasn't you...
It's maybe nothing.
It's just that wee rat Gareth said something to me,
and it's been preying on my mind.
When he mentioned Rhodes, I asked him...
do you think he could hurt Cal?
Gareth said aye.
If somebody paid him well enough.
Where is the wee scumbag anyway?
Has he crawled back under that rock he came out of?
You going to tell me now what this is about?
Help yourself. Don't mind me.
So, what are Pedro's people saying?
Not a lot.
Want one? No, I'll keep a clear head.
My guess is they're waiting for the pieces to fall before...
Before deciding how to play them.
Where does that leave us?
You happy with that?
No, I'm not happy with that.
You got any better ideas?
Worst thing we can do is run about like headless chickens.
We had a spot of local difficulty, that is all.
Is that what it was?!
When our friends in Spain are back talking,
that's what I'll be telling them.
What about the boatyard?
Eh? You cleared that? Or is that on hold as well?
That went up in flames about an hour ago.
What? Are you kidding me?
You torched it?
What you want to do that for?
We agreed. Place was a risk.
We also agreed that we were going to keep our heads down.
How's a bunch of angry boat-owners shouting at the polis
gonnae help us there? What's the matter with you?
What is your problem, Lenny? You are my problem!
And do you mind telling me what you think you're doing
acting the hard man with the Brodies?
We were hunting for the boy, remember?
I was hurrying things along. No.
What you were doing was drawing a big arrow straight from him to you!
See the next time, why don't you talk to me first?
And by the way, you steer clear of the Brodies from now on.
Is this you handing out the orders again?
If that's what it takes to get through to you, aye.
You keep throwing your weight about,
how long do you think it's gonnae be
before the polis get another phone call?
I've lost enough here already.
I'm not getting locked up in a cell cos of you an' all!
We lost an' all, son.
And I was in for a lot more than you, remember.
I meant to ask you about that. What?
How did you get the money?
I mean, you turn up here, dressed like a jannie
with the begging bowl out. Next minute you're flush. How's that?
I liquidated some assets.
Do you think I've only got what I stand up in?
Couple of businesses out in Alicante.
I've never heard of them before. I don't tell you everything, do I?
Still, if you've got them,
what are you coming to me for cash in the first place for?
Cos I wanted you with me -
I've told you often enough - as partners.
Still, that was lucky, eh?
Finding a buyer
in a recession.
Cannae be that many people with ready cash.
There's always buyers, Lenny.
So long as you've got what they want.
Anyway, I've told you what I came to say.
Minute I hear anything, I'll let you know.
You do that.
Hi. How's the new mum this morning?
And how's this little cherub doing?
She's so beautiful.
Good to see you, kiddo. You gave us a big scare.
Yeah. You were totally out of it when we saw you last night.
Aye, but you're on the mend, that's all that matters.
Doctor Wells reckons you'll be out of here in no time.
Oh, and I spoke to Leyla. She'll be here soon as.
Isn't he with you? Who?
He's not coming.
You told him to go, remember?
No. He was here.
How else did this get here?
He must have brought it for us.
Maybe he was, but he's not now.
Maybe that was just his leaving gift.
No, he'll be back.
Nic, you need to face the facts.
No matter what promises...
Gabriel, stop it. You never liked him from the start.
With good reason.
I was involved with the Kennedys too, remember?
He's trying to change.
He wants things to be different.
Look sweetheart, people like him don't change.
I did. Stevie did.
So why not Gareth?
You know, when I first met him,
I thought, as soon as he finds out I'm pregnant, he'll be gone.
But he wasn't? And do you know why?
Because he's never had a proper family either.
And that's what we're going to be, OK?
That's how I know he'll be back.
Gareth would do anything for us.
find him for me.
HAUNTING PIANO MUSIC PLAYS
Single gunshot wound to the head.
Pathologist's saying that he's been in the water for about 12 hours.
Think he was probably dumped in at the docks over there
and the tide's washed him in.
Oh, the forensics found this in his pocket.
The pathologists are also asking for a positive ID as well, sir.
OK, I can do that.
Yeah, that's him. That's Gareth O'Connor.
This is my doing. I made this happen.
I wanted Kennedy. I was obsessed with bringing him in...
We all were. We still are.
That's what he was trying to tell me. Sir?
He wanted me to know exactly what he was doing.
The suit. The look-back at the hospital.
He knew. He knew he was going to his own execution.
He gave himself up to protect Nicole and her baby.
As of now, this is a murder inquiry.
But till we're ready, we do not release a name.
All we're saying is a body washed up on the shore.
Cause of death - indeterminate. Understood? Mm-hmm.
So we bring in Kennedy and Murdoch now, yeah?
No. Not Kennedy.
Billy likes to be in control.
We tackle him head-on, he'll be ready for us.
What we need to do is start sowing a few seeds of doubt.
KNOCK AT DOOR
We've got a few questions we'd like to ask you
about your recent movements.
OK. What do you want to know?
We're particularly interested in yesterday evening.
You were here, perhaps?
No, I was out.
Where? Snooker hall. The VF.
What were you doing there?
Catching up with Billy Kennedy.
You and him were together?
That's what I said, isn't I?
Want to tell me what's going on?
Mr Murdoch, I'm afraid I've got some bad news.
The body of one of your employees was found less than an hour ago.
Washed up by the river.
Aren't you going to ask who?
Gareth Liam O'Connor.
Date of birth 20th of the 10th '94.
Just about to turn 19.
Hope you haven't bought him anything, Lenny.
I'd hate to think of you wasting money.
So I'm going to ask you again - where were you yesterday evening?
And before you answer, you should know
we believe Billy Kennedy was responsible for O'Connor's death.
Earlier in the day he was threatening the Brodie family.
The picture I get is that
if he couldn't find Gareth he'd hurt him through them.
But he found Gareth.
We've CCTV footage of him getting into Billy's car. So?
I was with Billy.
Aye, the wee man was there. For about ten minutes,
then he left. Left?
Aye, he was going somewhere to meet somebody.
Looked fine the last time I seen him.
OK, I think we're done here.
Actually, would you mind meeting me down in the car, DS Grant.
You are not still kidding yourself that you can control Kennedy?
A man who uses family to get to people.
I'd have thought you more than anybody
would have an issue with that.
Or is it just you don't care who gets hurt any more?
No matter how innocent?
Of course, Gareth wasn't innocent, was he? He was a grass.
Have you even stopped to think why he did that?
To save his skin. No!
It wasn't his own skin he was worried about!
If it was, why did he get into Billy's car?
He was trying to protect Nicole Brodie and her baby.
It took a lot for Gareth to turn grass.
Took him seeing Matty Rhodes pumped full of heroin,
knowing that was Billy's doing.
That what the boy told you, was it?
You answer me,
why would Billy do that, eh?
I mean, Matty Rhodes, what? Loudmouth wannabe.
Why'd Billy want him to kill him?
You tell me. Matty worked for him. Maybe he crossed him.
Same as Gareth. Nah. Rhodes never worked for Billy.
What about all the phone calls?
Billy had a phone smuggled inside.
The prison officers found the SIM Card.
In the weeks leading up to Billy's isolation
there were 13 phone calls made to Matty's mobile.
They must have had something big to discuss, eh?
Hello, Lenny, it's me.
Hello, Billy. How are you?
Detective Chief Inspector.
Yeah, Lenny's right here. We're just having a wee chat.
In fact, your name's come up a couple of times.
Lenny's a bit shaken.
One of his employees has just been pulled from the river.
Actually, he was last seen getting into your car.
Have you got an explanation for that, Billy?
That's a pity.
Still, I'm sure his version of events
will tally with yours 100%.
Do you remember just before Billy went to the jail,
he tried to use you for an alibi?
You wouldn't back him up.
Do you really think Billy Kennedy's the sort of man
to just forget something like that?
One more thing.
The reason you weren't at that meeting two days ago,
where the details of the shipment were finalised,
that was Gareth's doing, wasn't it?
He didn't want you there.
That was his way of protecting you.
He only wanted us to get Billy, not you.
Gareth stayed loyal, to the end.
He got that wrong too, didn't he?
You at the hotel?
Yeah, yeah, they've gone.
You know what he wanted.
And I wouldn't have had that if somebody's guy had done a better job!
Listen, I don't want to say too much on the phone.
What's your room number?
I'll see you there.
Murdoch is adamant
that he and Billy were in a snooker club when Gareth died.
Yeah, probably with three-dozen witnesses ready to swear the same.
OK, so what now? Bring Kennedy in?
Not until we've got proof.
I am not watching him sit there all smug again.
Next time, he does not walk out.
How many times have we been this close?
And they just slip through our grasp.
It's like we're fighting with one hand tied behind our backs
having to rely on the likes of O'Connor,
Meanwhile, I'm stuck giving bloody press conferences!
Would you prefer if I took it?
No. No, I'll do it.
If the public wants to know how successful the war on drugs is,
I'll tell them.
If everyone's ready.
Thank you for coming. I'll read a short statement.
However, you'll appreciate,
as this investigation has still got a ways to run,
I'll be unable to answer questions.
Yesterday officers from this force brought to fruition an operation
that's been in hand for the best part of six months.
Throughout that time,
we've been tracking an organised gang of ruthless individuals,
both here and beyond Shieldinch.
As a result, we, yesterday, intercepted and recovered
a substantial quantity of uncut heroin.
We also made significant arrests.
But to pretend we've done anything more
than temporarily stem the supply of illegal drugs into Scotland
would be false.
The people who are running this trade are sophisticated.
They just change, to suit each new situation they confront.
They have weapons I neither have, nor wish to have.
Oh, yes, I have bodies on the ground. I can deploy surveillance.
I can seek the help of banks and other legitimate organisations
in order to identify and target suspects.
However, the criminals I am pursuing have one major asset -
the willingness to use violence and intimidation.
They will go to any lengths.
They're happy to see lives ruined.
Innocent people harmed.
In some areas of this city, jobs have been taken away.
The possibility of pursuing legitimate employment
has all but vanished.
Leaving people to fill this gap by using and dealing drugs.
Anyone choosing to embrace this trade should be under no illusion.
It leads to prison.
My team have done an exemplary job.
I am proud of every member.
However, society at large has bigger questions to answer.
How committed are we to confronting this menace?
And one result, even the destruction of a lucrative supply line,
won't alter that a bit.
Maybe that's what politicians want us to think, but it's not true.
This is a war that will never end.
CAR ALARM BEEPS OFF
However, that doesn't mean we will simply give up.
We will continue to track down those responsible
by whatever means at our disposal.
Thank you. That's all.
You know what I really wanted to tell that press pack?
What? Not only are we not winning this war,
we are not even close. Probably never will be.
And what stopped you?
Shall I assemble the team for a briefing? Yeah.
Will you just tell us what happened?!
The villa was dark. There was no electricity.
There was two of them. They grabbed me,
put a hood over my head.
Kept going on about wanting their money. What money, Billy?
One of them drove me to the airport, never even got a chance to pack.
He took me on the plane.
Said if I screamed, we'd both be killed.
Wh-What about when you got over here?
He handed me over to this other guy. Expensive suit.
Did either of them say a name?
And did the same guy bring you here?
Just leave it with my office.
I'll have someone check out the figures and get back to you.
Who you looking at? Mr Murdoch.
Do I know you?
You know, my mother always impressed upon me
that listening at doors was bad manners.
Shouldn't we at least let Billy know we're here?
What is this? Who are you?
Mr Kennedy. I hope you've been told to expect me.
What's going on here? Shut it, Lenny, will you?
Perhaps we should do this inside?
Who's she? I'm his wife.
Mrs Kennedy has made an unannounced visit from Spain, Mr Murdoch.
I'm glad you were able to pass the message to your husband.
It's as well you appreciate what's at stake here.
Aye, all right, enough! You know who I am.
How's about you saying who you are?
Just cool it, Lenny, will you?
Somebody's going to tell me.
Lenny Murdoch, Mr Malick.
I've heard of you. Big-shot lawyer.
Second bit - what're you doing here?
Lenny! No, it's OK.
I've been asked by mutual friends, Mr Murdoch, to deliver a message.
The first part...well...
Was that really necessary?
Clearly your friends in Spain thought so.
He's from Pedro's people?
No, no, I'm my own man, Mr Murdoch.
As I said, I'm only here to pass on what I've been told.
So perhaps whilst we resolve our current situation,
Mrs Kennedy might wish to freshen up.
Are you just going to let him get away with this?
Just do what he says.
Just shut the door behind you.
Good. Maybe now we can get down to what we're here for.
Gentlemen, take a seat.
HE SIGHS You had a grass in your organisation. That's been dealt wi'.
Yeah, though allowing the body to be found was...careless.
Last thing anyone needs right now is a murder inquiry.
Especially as patience is already thin. What is this?
I'm here to talk, Billy, not listen.
People are worried that you've gone rogue.
There have been too many mistakes.
Not least the bodies stacking up in the morgue
as a result of how you've been cutting the drug.
Some people should have longer memories.
No, there's no denying you were a force in your day.
But the question is, are you still someone to do business with?
I'm sure Mr Marsden's wondering that right now, sitting in a police cell.
Facing a lengthy prison sentence.
Aye, all right, let's cut to the chase, eh?
You said you had a message - deliver it.
Mr Marsden said you were a man who didn't like to mess about.
Aw, that's nice of him(!)
But I'd prefer to know what the hell we're doing here.
What we're doing, Mr Murdoch,
is to first explain certain measures that have already been taken.
The keys to your villa have been appropriated.
Likewise, Mrs Kennedy's bar.
For the foreseeable future, they will remain
with your associates in that country as collateral against their losses.
But we're also here to see if there's a way forward.
How you and Mr Kennedy's relationship with my employers
is to progress.
What if I don't want to? Hmm?
I mean, I'm down a hell of a lot already here.
You're also left with outstanding debts.
The goods lost have to be paid for.
Together with the tariff payable for the arrest of Mr Marsden.
What about my cash?!
Naturally, our friends know that you don't have that kind of money
readily to hand.
Which is why they're willing to offer another way out.
They'll advance further goods.
You sell them.
You repay your debt.
Is that it?
It's a generous offer, I'm sure you'll agree.
Of course, should things go wrong a second time...
Tell them we accept.
That's not your decision to take.
What're you talking about?
Given recent events,
the organisation require a change in who they deal with.
Mr Murdoch will take over day-to-day control. You'll answer to him.
You screwed up, Billy.
You're not in a position to argue.
Can I say you agree with what's proposed?
Now...I imagine you'll want to be with your wife.
Mr Murdoch and I have things to discuss.
You'll be contacted as and when.
You don't call me. Is that understood?
And you think he's just going to swallow this?
Billy's a proud man, he won't like being told when to do.
Mr Murdoch, what you heard up there was only part of the story.
When Billy was locked up,
our associates in Spain were impressed with you.
Mr Marsden spoke highly.
I held a gun to the man's head!
But you didn't pull the trigger. Billy would've.
Our people are keen to expand operations.
They need capable men, not loose cannons.
And there's another reason.
Which is? DCI Donald.
He's not someone I take lightly.
You're better equipped to handle him than Billy.
This is an opportunity, Lenny.
Just one question first, though.
If they've already got Billy's number, why is he still involved?
He still has his contacts.
Billy's name on the ticket still opens and closes doors.
Naturally, in time, his use will dwindle.
You have a weapon with you. Have I?
Before I made you aware of my presence, I watched you.
Now, I don't know why you took a gun to see Billy,
but, just so we're clear, until the money's repaid,
the organisation will take a dim view
of any unnecessary police attention.
After that, of course...
I look forward to working with you, Mr Murdoch.
Look, I'm really sorry, Mr Brodie, but Gareth O'Connor's dead.
Do you think I'm being stupid, wanting him to come back?
Nic, you've just had a baby.
It's more than that. I love him.
What are you saying - he ripped aff Kennedy, cutting up the gear? What?
What difference does it make?
Is that why he was taken out?
Look, I'm so sorry, it's not good.
