Following the death of his wife accidentally in an East End gangland shooting, he is sent with the feisty DC Alicia Fearns to work with the Portuguese Police on the Algarve.

They immediately become embroiled in the first challenge - drug smuggling and that brings them into contact with the violent side of the sunny Algarve.
