Nathan Hawk is a recently retired police officer. A widower with four children scattered all over the world, he has gone to live in a typical English village. He spends his time there struggling with Anger Management Disorder and gardening for all he's worth. He's trying to kill time, time he never had as head of a Murder Squad...time he never wanted, time he doesn't want now. Then, driving home one night from a dinner party in the company of a young, female G.P, he comes across a brutal murder and he's right back where he used to be - catching a killer.
