Six-part crime drama centred around a historical crime that links four very different and seemingly unconnected suspects, unravelling secrets left buried for years.

DCI Cassie Stuart and DS Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan reopen a cold case when a skeleton is discovered in the foundations of a demolished building, launching a murder hunt that could potentially date back decades.

The discovery of a car key near the body is the only clue to the identity of the victim, igniting a search to find out who he is and how, when and why he died.

With Nicola Walker, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Tom Courtenay, Trevor Eve, and Bernard Hill.
