The Dead Hour Synopsis

It seemed like just another domestic: a woman bleeding from a head injury behind a smart front door in one of Glasgow's nicer suburbs. She insists she doesn't need help, and the well dressed man with her assures journalist Paddy Meehan that everything is fine. But Paddy is not convinced. Especially when she is given a GBP50 note to keep the story out the papers. The next morning, the woman is dead. Paddy has the story of a lifetime - but will lose everything if word gets out about the bribe. And it seems the police have their own reasons for twisting the evidence.
