Newly qualified DC Carrie and her much more experienced colleague DI Gayther are an unlikely pairing tasked with investigating a series of cold cases – specifically, unsolved murders of LGBTQ+ victims.
Back in the Eighties, these had not been considered a priority for police resources. But times have changed. As well as the contemporary outrage that such appalling crimes have been allowed to remain unsolved, there’s also now the whole matter of how policing is done. No longer are hunches and intuition suitable avenues of enquiry.
DC Carrie is well versed in technology-driven, algorithm-based methods. Still, she’s the first to admit that her partner’s thought processes are not easily replaced by anything a computer can do. When one of them gets in deep with a killer who is clearly not of sound mind, will help arrive soon enough to solve the case and prevent more deaths?
