In Protection, a young girl vanishes without trace and Squaring the Circle pitches us into classic thriller territory as the team investigate a bloody shootout. In One of our Own, the murder of a rising police star triggers an intense and harrowing journey into police loyalty and familial betrayal while the team face down a brutal gang of drug traffickers..
