Storyline

After testifying against his former colleagues in a corruption trial Sydney detective Jack Kempson (Colin Friels) is reassigned to a unit charged with entering the details of old cases into a police database. He unofficially begins to investigate unsolved crimes dating back many years. This case is the 1992 murder of a criminal informant who was shot at his son's football game. Jack and his partner, Samantha Lawson (Marta Dusseldorp), stop at nothing to find out who killed him and in the process find out who's behind an armed car robbery.

bitter-sweet?
7 November 2004 | by inca_HOOTS_filmsSee all my reviews

Good to see Channel 10 putting some bucks into Australian Drama, but I am getting a little sick of seeing the usual suspects. Does David Field play ANY different sort of character? Colin (everyman) Friels trots out a fairly run of the mill performance but it was still reasonably compelling. Twists and turns are few but well incorporated and reflects fairly typical writing in Australian cop shows. I'd also like to see the 'b' story get a little more weight rather than be the tail end wrap up which is usually the case. Tricky to follow.
