DCS Christopher Foyle investigates wartime crimes in the English coastal town of Hastings. With the end of World War II slowly but inevitably approaching, Foyle and his fellow citizens learn the price of victory and face a peace that will transform their lives in unexpected ways. Plan of attack: April 1944, DS Milner's investigation of a transportation fraud sets in motion a series of events that brings Foyle back to the force. As Hastings hosts an ecumenical conference on the morality of continued Allied bombing, Foyle probes the suspicious death of alyoung cartographer from the Air Ministry office. Broken souls: October 1944. At a psychiatric clinic treating troubled soldiers, the investigation of a doctor's murder turns up no shortage of suspects among the patients and staff. It also complicates Foyle's friendship with Dr. Josef Novak, the Polish refugee who heads the clinic. All clear: May 1945. As all of Britain awaits the formal announcement of the war's end, Foyle reluctantly joins a committee preparing to keep public order during the celebration to come.

"X" sees his opportunity to make a final score when crime boss Jimmy Price asks him to find the wayward daughter of rival crime boss Eddy Ryder. He agrees to take the seemingly innocuous assignment as his opportunity to get out of the business with the blessing of Jimmy Price
