ABOUT THE SHOW

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is back

Based on the best selling novels by Peter Robinson

When the mother of 11 year old Kyle Heath reports him abducted by a man and a woman masquerading as social workers, Banks is drawn into a strange and unsettling search for the missing boy. When a journalist is found dead at a holiday home in a remote village, Banks and the team find a connection to a death in the 1980s involving the surviving members of a pop band.

And a terrible chain of events is set in motion by the discovery of a loaded gun in a young girl's bedroom, ultimately putting Banks' own daughter in mortal danger. Elsewhere Detective Annie Cabbot returns from a year's maternity leave - is it time for Banks to admit how he really feels about her? Detective Helen Morton's relationship with her son becomes increasingly strained. And a difficult case forces Annie to reveal the identity of her child's father.
