Freshly promoted DI Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly, Sherlock Holmes) reunites with DCI James Langton (Ciaran Hinds, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) to investigate the murder of a former police officer. Based on the best-selling novels by Lynda La Plante, this hit British drama is a "younger, sassier successor to Prime Suspect" (Telegraph, UK). 3 episodes, 2 1/4 hrs, 1 DVD, SDH. Mature audiences.
In London, ex-cop Frank Brandon is shot dead in a drug den and his glamorous widow, Julia, is strangely unmoved. With little help from her distracted supervisor, and despite Langton's orders, Travis goes in search of the truth.
As the body count rises, Langton acknowledges that Travis may be on to something. The detectives get a confession about the Frank Brandon shooting, but the other murders remain unsolved. An international drug lord seems poised to introduce a new drug to the U.K.
Three are dead, and Julia could be next. She tells the truth about her marriages to Frank Brandon and Anthony Collingwood, also known as Alexander Fitzpatrick. The team catches a break when a CCTV camera captures a partial image of a killer's face.
