The series follows Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a murder she thinks is gang-related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power. It's the kind of story that will destroy lives, including those of her own family. With help from lead homicide detective Kevin Lutz (Lyriq Bent), her editor Mary Foster (Alex Kingston) and co-worker Simon Olenski (Lucas Bryant), Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.

Really enjoying this series
24 October 2016 | by sholness-81505See all my reviews

This is story is the quintessential thriller but rather than your typical Bourne Identify male lead, the main focal point is a female protagonist who is a flawed but truly compelling character. As a the main character, Daisy is driven and ambitious but you root for her success ( and safety) as she navigates a world that is seedy and interesting. The pace of each episode moves at a good clip, keeping you on the edge of your seats and I love how each episode ends with a cliff hanger that keeps you wanting more. I appreciate the rich tapestry of life that the series highlights as you get a glimpse into the variety of communities that you can find in major metropolis, from the high roller basketball players to the low key family home of people of faith. What I really enjoy about this series so far it's that it's a complex thriller where I haven't figured out exactly who are the bad guys (killers) and who are the heroes...so far, it's not a transparent plot and as such it deserves a kudos. In short If you Iove a good story, dynamic characters and a top notch mystery series then you too will enjoy this really great drama.
