The world’s most exciting city is the backdrop for a series of murders — all investigated by an elite murder squad. This specialist group is headed by hugely experienced Detective Inspector David Bradford. He has just come back to work after compassionate leave — his wife has been missing for three months. David’s team is comprised of ambitious Detective Sergeant Vivienne Cole who plays by her own rules, seasoned crime-solver Detective Constable Rob Brady and inexperienced Trainee Detective Constable Billie Fitzgerald.
As the detectives solve each murder case — the staged suicide of an MP’s son, the mysterious death of a man at his bachelor party, a killing on a houseboat, a woman’s body washed up by the Thames, and the stabbing of one of his own team — the one case David can’t solve is the one most personal to him. Where is his wife?
