Storyline

The one thing Josephine ("Jo") Bradley (30) knows is that she is a good cop. She's ambitious and tough (or thinks she is) and has just been assigned her first big case as Lead Detective following her recent promotion in Vancouver's Homicide Division. Born in China and abandoned by a family she never knew, Jo was adopted as a toddler and relocated to Vancouver. Raised by a single mother, a Professor of Sinology, Jo wanted for nothing growing up. But, much to her mother's chagrin, Jo chose policing as a career. When Charles Xie, the son of a prominent real estate developer, goes missing and his body is found ritualistically buried, Jo is assigned the case. It happens on one of the worse days of her life following a cancer diagnosis and an imminent and difficult decision about treatment. But Jo will need to put the personal aside when she goes head-to-head with the wealthy and privileged Xie family, led by the tyrannical and powerful patriarch, Li-Rong Xie. Risking her career, Jo will be...

So bad!
8 November 2017 | by maggiedosremediosSee all my reviews

I was flipping through my Fire Stick and saw this show. Out of curiosity, I started watching. First of all (alright, it's a girl's thing) that Steph Song's skin is so bad, and Mama Xie's ring is pathetic! This show is a very low cost production but for Pete's sake, just pay attention to small stuff. Story line is utterly boring. I understand the show is trying to appeal to the Chinese, but the lead actress cannot speak any Chinese and it's painful to hear she tried so hard. Do you really think Canadian Chinese care to watch this crap? They have plenty other shows to watch. That explain why it only lasted for one season.
