Bad side to negotiator’s powers
Ransom, Fox8, Sunday at 9.30pm
INSPIRED by the real-life experiences of renowned international crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert and his partner Marwan Mery,
Ransom stars Luke Roberts (pictured) as Eric Beaumont.
Beaumont uses his insight into human behaviour to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases.
Despite the stakes, the hero doesn’t have to pull out a gun to get his job done – even when confronted by some of the most dangerous criminals in the world.
Beaumont’s considerable powers of manipulation make him the best at what he does professionally but they often complicate his relationships with family, friends and colleagues.
His team consists of psych profiler Oliver Yates, ex-cop Zara Hallam and aspiring investigator Maxine Carlson.
