A thrilling crime drama exploring the personal and professional lives of two female detectives, from award-winning writer Sally Wainwright. Detective Constable Rachel Bailey is 30, down-to-earth, noisy, argumentative and single. Her partner, Detective Constable Janet Scott, is 40, a diplomat and a thinker, as well as being a wife and mother. They both work for Manchester Metropolitan Police's prestigious Murder Investigation Team and, despite the obvious differences between them, they make a formidable team.
Having coerced Nick into buying her an apartment, Rachel finds out that she is pregnant with his child. Janet, meanwhile, is dreading her wedding anniversary party and presses on with the long cold murder case of her school friend Veronica.
