In South Devon, Chief Instructor Rafe Phelps is jumping at the skydiving school, The Drop Zone, when his parachutes fails and he dies on impact.
Rafe's business partner and ex girl-friend Lori Fletcher tells Jane and Davey that the parachutes must have been sabotaged. Meanwhile, one of the other skydivers Eddie Landman heads to The Black Dog to drown his sorrows and drunkenly reveals to Mick and Judith that he killed his best friend.
Jane finds out that he's not the only one who had a motive and the opportunity to kill. Rafe's distraught wife Jess begs Jane and Davey to give her some answers. The question on everyone's mind is whether someone killed Rafe - or did he do it to himself?
