A compelling contemporary series which uses a unique blend of crime mystery, science and detection. Forensic pathologist Dr Sam Ryan has an all-embracing, passionate notion of justice which quite often does not accord with the polices objective of getting a conviction. This can lead to trouble, both in her personal and professional lives, but to Sam, each dead body deserves nothing but the truth. This series tackles child murder, ritual killing, a murder in the police cells and an arranged marriage which leads Sam to confront her own demons.
