Gripping new three-part drama starring Trevor Eve (Waking the Dead, Framed) as an international hostage negotiator who takes on one of the toughest cases of his life when an apparently simple negotiation goes awry.
Joining Trevor Eve in this brand new series are co-stars John Hannah (Rebus, Cold Blood) as threatening kidnapper Willard alongside Helen Baxendale (Marple, Cold Feet), Natasha Little (Mistresses, This Life), Emma Fielding (Cranford) and Patrick Baladi (The Darjeeling Limited).
With British businesswoman Naomi Shaffer (Fielding) still being held hostage, a local South African policeman, Inspector Lanning (Tumisho Masha), is keen to join forces with Dominic (Eve) to solve this case, but Dominic is wary. The amateur kidnappers have been superseded by a group that is much more professional, with a mysterious British man, Willard (Hannah), in charge.
After tough negotiations with Dominic, Willard agrees to release Naomi, and Dominic brings Naomi home. Meanwhile, Dominic’s demanding job is straining his relationship with his wife, Sophie (Little) and daughter. Dominic keeps an eye on Naomi after her return, suspecting she’s holding something back, and late one night the kidnappers strike again.
