In Entente Cordiale Haggerty kills a man in the line of duty and finds himself investigated by A-10. Meanwhile Craven’s ex-wife Claudia turn up announced on his doorstep. She seems to have links to the man Haggerty killed.
Claudia, who is French-Algerian, was in fact working for the man killed by Tom. He was under investigation for supposed political reasons. However when Craven and Haggerty go to question Claudia she has disappeared. When Craven visits Claudia’s best friends he is told that Claudia was there but was picked up by the police.
When Craven is told to take a few days off because the case is to close to him, he naturally continues investigating on his own time.
The episode is a good chance to learn a bit more about Craven. Despite not having seen Claudia for some time, he is clearly still concerned about her. He is also convinced that she has nothing to do with whatever her boss was involved with,
