From the creator of PRIME SUSPECT! "Victoria Smurfit...is fabulous." - The Guardian (U.K.); "Compelling" - Deseret News (Salt Lake City, UT). Crime-to-court suspense from Lynda La Plante. Volumes XIX-XXII.
Lynda La Plante (Prime Suspect) delivers more hard-hitting drama in these final episodes from the hit British crime series. Trial & Retribution follows each case from the scene of the crime to the jury's verdict, portraying with uncompromising realism the professional and personal pressures that detectives endure.
David Hayman (Sid and Nancy) and Victoria Smurfit (About a Boy) deliver outstanding performances as DCS Mike Walker and DCI Roisin Connor, two fervently committed investigators on the London police force. From a father who is determined to help his son get away with murder to a fatal fall that might not have been an accident, these feature-length episodes unfold with innovative storytelling and exceptional writing. Guest stars include Roy Marsden (P.D. James mysteries), Benjamin Whitrow (Pride and Prejudice), and Ashley Madekwe (Revenge). NOTE: Contains nudity, disturbing images, and coarse language.
