John threatens Symmonds with a gun for setting him up but Lenny calms him down and gives him his new assignment. Cold-blooded killer Sean O'Driscoll has arrived from Dubai to mastermind a big robbery...
A very strong cast with interesting plot lines. I am fascinated at the interaction between the four main characters, fractious yet bound together by circumstances beyond their control; however these are situations of their own making, each wounded with many redeemable qualities, attributes that may save or destroy them.
The action scenes are direct, no nonsense yet never indulgent, in your face violence that reflects the nature of the beast with great realism.
The situations the team find themselves in, dealing with issues most worrying the public at the moment, how to manage some of the problems that exist in our society that traditional policing can't or won't act upon, damage control as it were, perhaps for incompetent political policy at the highest level?
