This taut psychological thriller from Paula Milne (The Politician's Wife) introduces Ross Tanner (Clive Owen), a rugged police detective who lives for the thrill of the chase -- while desperate to conceal a terrifying secret: He's going blind. Claire Skinner co-stars as Detective Inspector Catherine Tully, drafted into Tanner's crime unit as his partner in the investigation of the apparently motiveless murder of college student Matthew Bendrix (Tom Mullion) -- and, later, into Tanner's elaborate charade to camouflage his condition. Together, they make a dynamic pair -- both on and off the clock -- and discover there is more to murder than meets the eye. New cases featuring Detective Chief Inspector Tanner are planned for future seasons on MYSTERY!
