Detective Superintendent Henry Christie is not just a good cop; he’s also a passionate advocate for victims of unsolved crimes. He’s deep into investigating one such crime, the victim a teenage girl whose brutalized body has never been identified, when he’s called to the scene of a drowning. The victim is the missing wife of a wealthy local businessman, but the person who discovered her body is Christie’s longtime enemy, Steve Flynn, a former cop accused of raking off the proceeds of a drug deal. He fled the country despite being cleared of the crime but has come back to help a dying friend. Although Henry hoped never to set eyes on Flynn again, he realizes that his old enemy could prove useful. As Henry unravels the case clue by painstaking clue, he uncovers some very unpleasant facts, but nothing can prepare him for the discovery that some of his closest colleagues may be involved. As usual, Oldham offers up an action-filled, high-octane plot with plenty of crazy twists and turns, but it’s his Henry Christie character who makes this series a real standout. --Emily Melton
