He has no relief at work, where he’s working with the murder investigation team under Detective Constable Andy Shepherd’s leadership. They are busy on a major case after a string of dead bodies were been found in the area.
John has the makings of a decent detective. He’s experienced enough to take young and eager police officers under his wing, and given another time and place, John would have been a brilliant mentor. But as the net begins to close - both at home and at work - John is unable to unpick the tangled web that he’s in and he loses sight of the harmless, happy-go-lucky family man he used to be.
John is a man on the edge. And being desperate drives you to do desperate things. What happens when you have a split second to make a decision? What if you make the wrong choice? But being a detective has its advantages and John is going to need nerves of steel to get through his ordeal.
