Storyline

Having seen crooked businessman Nicholas Mason acquitted of a factory robbery and murder of employee Anthony Cummings, due to a legal loop-hole, enigmatic Helen Barlow calls in Jack Quinn, leader of a trio of maverick crime-busters along with locks expert Jessica Jones and computer wizard Thomas Tomkins to bring Mason down. Raymond Nash, who testified against Mason, is in a safe house and Helen believes one of two policemen is on Mason's payroll. Jack targets ex-cop Charlie O'Brien who apparently contacted armed robber Michael Craig to work on Mason's next hit whilst the team learn that Mason is seeing psychiatrist Paul Hollander for anger management. They trade on this by leading Mason to believe that his much younger wife Karen is having an affair with Nash and rely on Mason's vengeful temperament setting out to kill Nash, as well as introducing their own armed robber into Mason's next heist.
