Detective Inspector Helen Weeks is happily content in her relationship with colleague Paul Hopkins especially now she’s pregnant with his baby. Returning to her home town of Polesford to investigate the disappearances of two schoolgirls, Helen’s world is thrown into chaos when she learns that Paul might not be the baby’s father. She also had a brief fling with Adam Perrin, another co-worker, and he could be the father.
Initially, she hides the news from Paul until unpleasant memories evoked from the case she’s investigating prompt her to be honest with him. Despite his shock, Paul reconciles his differences with Helen but soon after they return to Manchester, Paul is sensationally shot dead, devastating Helen and sending her on a quest to find his killer and make sense of how much her world has changed.
