Storyline

Unorthodox but troubled cop Molly McGee leads an investigation into the murder of an unidentified woman. To solve the case, Molly has to team up with Alex O'Connell - a man she hasn't spoken to in twenty years - and they discover that the murder has links to a historic cold case and unnatural circumstances. What begins as a routine investigation exposes something more insidious, and to catch the killer, Molly and Alex have to face the ghosts of their past.

Not a bad series as far as Australian attempts go.
3 January 2020 | by John_WagenvoortSee all my reviews

Warning, no spoilers except for the fact that no Australian would call the vehicle Freddie drives a truck. It's what Aussies refer to as a ute. Maybe the script writer isn't an Aussie and no other member of the cast and crew is either else someone would have picked up on the fact that the bloody vehicle is not a truck but a bloody ute.

Apart from that it's not a bad show.
