A smirk on his face, Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) leaves the Hastings police station for the last time with the ambition to sail to America. A glance at a newspaper headline about a treason trial inexplicably draws Foyle's attention into one final case he can't leave alone. Former POW James Devereaux, part of a prominent local family, is charged with switching sides and aiding the Germans during the war, and will likely hang for his crimes. After repeated jail visits, Foyle is unable to extract details or a motive from Devereaux, making the case all the more intriguing. Why is the POW so reticent to reveal evidence that may exonerate him? Meanwhile, Detective Inspector Paul Milner (Anthony Howell) is investigating the case of a young woman who has been strangled, while Samantha "Sam" Stewart (Honeysuckle Weeks) and Paul Wainwright are trying to save their failing guest house and stave off new development plans in Hastings. One thing is clear — Foyle's departure isn't destined to be an easy one, in a case that promises to be the most personal of all.
