Episode 4 - Devil of the Deep
When badly beaten corpses wash up on a Mexican beach the usual suspects are under suspicion. But ‘fishing-detective’ Jeremy Wade is intrigued by another theory – this one involving a mysterious sea creature. 
Jeremy’s cases usually involve freshwater culprits, but with multiple reports of a deep-water serial killer in Mexico’s ‘Sea of Cortez’, he must step out of his comfort zone and into unchartered depths. 
He tracks down a survivor whose chilling account identifies the underwater assassin as ‘el diablo rojo’ – the red devil... Jeremy must brave sea-sickening conditions to reveal a horrific beast that many fear more than sharks.
