Tom Carney returns to his village in the north-east after being suspended by
his London tabloid.
Helen Norton is a reporter doing Tom's old job on the local newspaper. Together, they investigate a string of disappearances of young girls in the area.
Struggling DC Ian Bradshaw works the same case, fearing that the only thing he will unravel is himself.
When a body is found, it's not one of the girls, but a decades-old corpse. They all search for answers to a murder buried in the past, while in the present-day an unstoppable killer must be brought to justice...
