Teenagers messing around in a stolen car collide with a concrete pillar in a multi-story car park. The joyriders escape, but within the smashed concrete, the unmistakable form of a skull is revealed.

After painstakingly extracting the skeleton encased inside, Nikki and the Lyell team must investigate a suspicious death from 20 years ago.

Meanwhile Clarissa faces a difficult decision regarding her mother’s care.
