A sack of human bones is left outside the police station. A fitting follow up to a rotten week. The Major Investigations team is recovering from the shock of a sickening high school shooting, while the department is under added strain from budget cuts.

Detective Sergeant Victor Trimm returns to balance his new romantic relationship while trying to comfort his friend Detective Inspector Edward Dooley. Dooley is going through a particularly stressful divorce, looking to Trimm for support while his world crumbles around him. Trying to balance this with his investigation into the bag of bones proves particularly hard as Hubert Saint from Professional Standards can now officially press his investigation into Trimm's shady background. As usual, Trimm has all the right answers to keep Saint at bay, but things begin to spiral out of control as Dooley becomes the prime suspect in the murder inquiry.
