Alicia has been a good wife to her husband, a former state attorney. After a very humiliating sex and corruption scandal, he is behind bars. She must now provide for her family and returns to work as a litigator in a law firm.
Det. Supt. Peter Boyd (played by Trevor Eve) is the leader of a multi-discipline police team of detectives and scientists, the Cold Case Squad, which investigates old, unsolved murder cases using modern methods and new technology that may not have been available during the original investigation.
After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle gets permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.
This French Crime drama series is sheer quality and if you are using the sub titles it adds to your concentration and the suspense. The French judicial system is very different from the UK and USA with examining judges being involved with the Police in investigations. Some great characters and great plots combine to make this a series not to be missed. The standard of acting is brilliant with each individual character creating a sub plot. All are very different with strengths, weaknesses and skeletons in the closet. You also have the machinations of promotion, positions and control within the Police and Judiciary to add extra interest I have seen all four series and cannot wait for the next.
