On the job, Detective Chief Inspector Janine Lewis deals with the ugly side of human nature, investigating Manchester’s most gruesome crimes. At home, she’s a harried but devoted single mother of four, struggling to balance her challenging career with the stresses and rewards of family life.
Award-winning actress Caroline Quentin (Men Behaving Badly, Life of Riley) perfectly captures Lewis’s strength and vulnerability as she balances work and family, aided by her handsome, dedicated partner (Ian Kelsey, Casualty). This complete collection follows the gritty realities of Lewis’s career from her initial promotion through personal and professional ups and downs--always presented with a touch of wry humor and keen observations about modern motherhood.
