About this title


When Flying Squad officer Robbie McLaughlan shoots and kills a robber during a bank raid, his private and professional life fall apart. When the family of the dead man learn McLaughlan's identity, they abduct his young son and use him as a lure.

There are only two people McLaughlan can turn to. One is the ageing cop who raised him. The other is the violent biological father who rejected and deserted him a life-sentence ago.
