Hidden Depths (2011)

Film details


DCI Vera Stanhope and her team investigate the murder of a young boy found dead in his bath surrounded by neatly arranged dried flowers. DS Joe Ashworth is distracted by the imminent arrival of his third child. When another murder victim is discovered on the beach the investigation moves to find a link between the victims who had both received a note with a dried flower.
