An ex-cop investigates new kinds of crime
Kevin Whately (Inspector Lewis) stars as Jimmy Griffin, an ex-cop turned insurance investigator in this winning British detective series. Jimmy's cunning and insight are well-suited to the business of exposing con men and other fraudsters. With his police training, he's able to take on any case, no matter how dangerous. If only he could be as successful in his personal life.
Fresh off a divorce from Sally (Annette Ekblom, Holby City) and a breakup with his colleague and mistress, Gabby (Michelle Fairley, Game of Thrones), Jimmy still hasn't learned when to shut his wandering eyes and turn off his rakish charm. As he struggles to rebuild his family, keeping them safe from the perils of his work proves to be his ultimate test.
