A tough guy with a soft heart, Jackson Brodie (Golden Globe nominee Jason Isaacs, HARRY POTTER movies, THE PATRIOT) is a former Edinburgh cop trying to make a living as a private detective. But while he has a hard time paying his bills, he has no shortage of clients seeking his services. Some are parents looking for children and some are children looking for parents; some are worried about the future and some are seeking information about the past-an area that continues to haunt Brodie, too. Unable to overlook a wrong or neglect a person in need, Brodie feels compelled to find answers for his clients. But he doesn't find much peace from the women in his own life, including his ex-wife, ex-girlfriend (Natasha Little, KIDNAP AND RANSOM), 12-year-old daughter, long-suffering bookkeeper (Zawe Ashton, FRESH MEAT), and a former colleague (Amanda Abbington, SHERLOCK) who seems to be the only person on the force still talking to him.
