Program Description

Cordelia Gray (Helen Baxendale) unexpectedly inherits the private detective agency where she works when her boss, Bernie Pryde (Jeff Nuttall), commits suicide. Cordelia Gray is P. D. James's only female detective. Her first solo case, a college student's suicide, seems uncomplicated at first. But Gray soon discovers that the case is more complex -- and dangerous -- than it first appeared. Her investigation leads to the deceased's friends, his scientist-father (Ian McDiarmid), and, finally, to the truth about his family -- and his death.
