Tony®-nominated actor Martin Shaw (Judge John Deed, The Professionals) returns as Inspector George Gently, a grizzled London detective and grieving widower who finds new life--and new purpose--in Britain’s windswept Northumberland. In the mid-1960s, this remote region has just begun to feel the ripples of social and cultural change rocking the rest of the world, and Gently brings big-city smarts and unflappable judgment to his job. Teamed with brash young sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Nickleby), he uncovers motives for murder in a once-tranquil place during a time of transition.
