|Plot||The play opens with a happy scene in the home of Hal, the erring brother. Through the persuasions of a friend, Hal begins to frequent a questionable pool room. His brother, Paul, a cleric, warns him against his evil associates, but Hal disregards Paul's counsels. In a short time he begins to play for money. He gets into a game with a young man, who unknown to him, is a notorious counterfeiter, one of a gang whose headquarters are under the pool room, and of which the pool room proprietor is a member. In settling the stakes, Hal is handed a couple of crisp new bills. One of these he unwittedly passes on a local merchant. In the meantime, a detective has been on the trail of the counterfeiters and has begun to suspect Hal. When the merchant shows him the "queer" and describes the man who "shoved" it on him, the detective begins a search for Hal. The latter is warned by a pal and goes to his brother Paul for counsel. Paul persuades Hal to let him (Paul) takes Hal's place. Accordingly, the brothers (who are twins) exchange vestures. Hal donning Paul's clerical raiment and Paul assuming his brother's layman's attire. The detective arrives and arrests Paul, who is subsequently convicted and committed to prison, while Hal attempts to carry on his brother's work. In the course of his itinerant preaching he strikes upon a clue which leads to the discovery and capture of the counterfeiters. In the gun play which takes place between the police and the criminals, the young counterfeiter is fatally wounded. Hal persuades him to confess. Paul is now pardoned and resumes his missionary work. The closing scenes show Paul preaching to a crowd, with Hal and his family in attendance.... search for A Brother's Loyalty on IMDb|

Dr Annabelle Evans a personal friend of Sam Ryan and a senior lecturer in genetics at a Cambridge college is found murdered. New detectives DI Connor and DS Bradley suspect Annabelle's husband, Martin. But when DIConnor realises that Ryan knows the victim, he is understandably concerned: "Isn't it possible that you could jeopardise any case we might bring?" "The head injury wasn't the cause of death. I believe she was suffocated after being hit," Sam's partner,Trevor Stewart tells her. Sam's certainties about her job are tested as she discovers that the forensic evidence on the corpse is confusing. Her grief and anger destroy her usual clinical detachment. Even DS Bradley is surprised by Sam's persistence. Later, a student is murdered and the police suspect it is the same person who killed lecturer Annabelle Evans. Sam is too close to the case and her emotion is clouding her judgement. She seeks the advice of her former mentor, Professor Leon Forman. He advises,"Go back to the body. Go back to what is certain." Ryan believes that the killer is waiter and sometime student Marco Rossi, and that Annabelle's husband Martin is innocent. DI Connor learns that his suspicions are wrong about Martin killing his wife because she discovered he was having an affair. It was Annabelle herself who was adulterous. Sam and her partner,Trevor Stewart, deduce that Annabelle's body was likely to have been frozen, dressed, moved and smeared with animal blood. B|
