Synopsis

This is a raw drama where ego and vanity clash with pure evil. We watch the impact of stress and pressure on Britain's number one detective as he attempts to solve the unsolvable.

Infuriated by the publicity thrust upon Detective Chief Inspector Jeff Heat, a mysterious sociopath, claiming to have murdered hundreds of worthless individuals, reveals himself by e-mail and suggests that the new 'Sherlock Holmes' would be unable to capture him. The sociopath baits Jeff's team of detectives with cryptic clues before commiting a series of callous murders, much to Jeff's frustration. Under pressure from his bosses and depressed by his lack of success in piecing together the clues left behind by the murderer, Jeff makes one last gamble by placing himself in the trap, which backfires with disastrous consequences.

This is an enthralling drama which demonstrates that evil very often triumphs over good.
