A young girl is murdered in what is apparently an open and shut case, but Helen is convinced that all is not as it seems, and calls on the help of Jack and his team to prove that an innocent man has been set up by a disgruntled former policeman, who will stop at nothing in his quest for vengeance.

Full SynopsisEdit

As the new action-packed crime drama continues, insider informant Helen Barlow has a tragic new case for Jack Quinn and his clandestine team who bridge the grey area between the law and true justice. When a young girl’s body is found in the car boot of well-respected Judge Peter Hopkins, the evidence for the girl’s murder all seems to point to him.

However, given Peter’s impeccable reputation, Helen is instantly suspicious, calling the team in to investigate. Helen believes that Peter has been framed by ex-policeman Joe Tyrus, who holds a personal vendetta against him. A smart man, with knowledge of the law, Joe has created the ‘perfect’ murder and manipulated the system in order to send Peter down for good.

Throwing themselves into the case, the team witnesses the full impact of Tyrus’ monstrous crime when Jess steps in to investigate as a victim support representative. Seeing the destructive effect the girl’s murder has had on her family, the gang are spurred on to achieve justice. Will they be able to get Joe to reveal the truth and prove Peter’s innocence?
