At first sight it could seem to be a straightforward murder investigation for Tony Clark (Neil Pearson ), in the second of the new drama series about the Met's Complaints Investigation Bureau. Except that the murderer is a detective superintendent and the victim is his wife.
The murderer has himself investigated more than 40 murders, and is described by his boss as "calm, cool-headed, a very private man". But the more Clark examines the case the more complex the truth appears to be.
