#FF — The Wrong Shoes

It was so simple to don scrubs, ID, and mask. No one glanced her way on the graveyard shift as she wheeled the newborn pod from the nursery, into the elevator, and abandoned it; then carried her precious cargo out of the hospital’s delivery dock doors.

Baby June, being the child of a one-percenter, meant the kidnapping investigation continued. DCI Mathias and team were called in after six months.

Mathias freeze-framed the surveillance tape and said, “The shoes.”

DS Owen searched databases and interviewed orthopedic specialists until she hit.

Baby June was recovered and the kidnapper was arrested. Case closed.

DCI Mathias and DS Owens are characters in a really good new (to me) show I just started watching on Netflix called “Hinterland.” IMDB describes it as, “A noir crime drama set in Aberystwyth, Wales, where troubled DCI Tom Mathias solves murders while searching for redemption.”

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the artiste host of Friday Fictioneers.

    1. I just finished episode 2. Each episode is like a movie at 90 minutes. Pretty in-depth coverage. Yes, he is an all-business glum one. From the clues I’m seeing, it seems his wife has left him and they have twins between them. The location is magnificent landscape but where he lives seems isolated and lonely for him.

      1. Yeah, I definitely got as far as figuring out that he was running away from something haunting, and in that sense, the isolated setting is sort of his melancholic refuge. I like the landscape too, one of the major reasons I keep going back to the series. It speaks volumes on its own.

        1. You have to pay attention and the actors make paying attention easy and fun. Yes very good. Daniel Craig and the actress who played the AI gf of Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049 stole the show, but Chris Evans gave them a run for their money.

          1. I asked Bailey again when I got home and he really liked it….he wants us to see it so it will be soon. He is a huge Ryan Gosling fan and a even larger Blade Runner fan.
