A fresh, streetwise, frequently funny, frequently nasty, London-based crime series featuring sexy, no-nonsense female DI Jessie DriverJessie Driver is a fast-track motorbike-riding female cop with a colourful love-life, an attitude and more than a few resentful male colleagues. When one of them sends her to check out a headless skeleton washed up on the banks of the Thames, Jessie is furious. But this case is far from routine: the bones have been bleached, and floating nearby like a pair of jellyfish are the only source of identification - the victim's silicone implants.Soon Jessie is on the trail of a vicious killer who seems to be targeting B-list celebrities - the owner of the implants is the first, but not the only, wannabe to meet a sticky end. Under a media spotlight, Jessie's given the chance to prove once and for all that she has what it takes to handle a high-profile investigation. But when she becomes dangerously involved with a key suspect, her detached professionalism seems to fly out the window, and soon her own life could be in danger.
