    Award-winning actress Marta Dusseldorp (A Place to Call Home, Jack Irish) returns as senior crown prosecutor Janet King in this "unnervingly intricate, dark, but steadily intriguing" (The Wall Street Journal) Australian legal drama. After a young cricket player's suicide, Janet is seconded to the National Crime Commission and tasked with investigating the links between gambling, professional sports, and organized crime.

    The shocking death of a key witness further complicates the already tangled web of intrigue, and Janet faces an ethical dilemma when an estranged family member becomes a person of interest to the commission. As the mystery unfolds, Janet and her team uncover a high-stakes world of match fixing, performance-enhancing drugs, money laundering, and murder. This "astutely realized mystery" (The Australian) also stars Damian Walshe-Howling (The Reef), Christopher Morris (Home and Away), and Don Hany (Serangoon Road).
