Meanwhile, Inspector Mehmet Suleyman is on leave with his teenage son, Patrick, who is visiting from Ireland, but when Detective Kerim Gursel's transsexual ex-lover, Pembe, is also murdered, shortly after confessing that Wael Al Hussain had used her for sexual favours, Suleyman knows he must help Kerim solve this complex case.
