Series Info

When Detective Inspector Hannah Laing kisses her married lover Sean Hardacre goodbye one morning, she never imagines it will be the last time she will see her fellow detective alive. But Sean goes missing and his brutalised corpse is recovered the following day. Determined to find whoever is responsible for killing him, Hannah accesses one of Sean's confidential contacts and persuades 'Issy' to help her unpick the tangled threads of Sean's investigation into the Mimicas a tight-knit family who left Croatia for Bristol and now run a successful restaurant, where Christian, Hannah's son now works. But under the guidance of the ruthless eldest son, Davor, the family are ambitious to expand their criminal activities, which risks stretching family bonds to breaking point. The Mimicas closeness as a family provides a painful contrast to Hannah's fractured, dysfunctional relationship with her own son. Forced to operate undercover for fear of a criminal informer at Police HQ, Hannah and her sceptical new partner, Billy Murdoch, uncover a daring plot by the Mimicas to smuggle an enormous quantity of cocaine into the country. When Hannah also discovers Issy's identity, however, she quickly realises there is far more at stake than bringing Sean's killers to justice.
