After investigating the death of a woman whom he believes was killed by her husband, Lawrence Pendry who is extremely wealthy and uses his father’s newspaper empire to smear Lestrade’s name. When the father dies, Lestrade crashes his funeral and causes a scene, then flees and sets off a manhunt. [2]
