After a police convoy is ambushed, the investigation centers on DI Lindsay Denton, the sole survivor. Why did Denton allow a police convoy to proceed without backup and without firearms? Why take the route she did? How did the ambushers know? Denton quickly goes from valuable witness to prime suspect.
Evidence against Denton begins to mount, but she won't go down without a fight. The increasingly erratic detective begins to uncover past actions that put her investigatorsDS Arnott, DC Fleming, and Superintendent Hastingson the defensive.
Targeted while in prison, Denton confides to Fleming why she thinks she is being set up. Meanwhile, the mutilated body of a teenage girl is found buried under a collapsed garage door.
Denton alleges a high-level conspiracy and cover-up. Only when she is granted special dispensation to leave prison to visit her dying mother do Arnott and Fleming begin to realize the danger she is in.
While Denton fights for her life, details emerge of her relationship with a senior police officer. Hastings faces the prospect of having to confront a superior who holds the superintendent's future in his hands.
As more facts about the ambush start to emerge, Denton seems to have found an advocate and ally in Arnott. Fleming takes a different view, however, and is determined to prove both of them wrong.. Martin Compston... Steve Arnott / ... (11 episodes, 2012-2014)
