Trial & Retribution: Set One
No one explores the human cost of crime and punishment with more depth and resonance than Lynda La Plante, creator of the critically lauded Prime Suspect. In this Law & Order like British series, La Plante follows cases from the commission of the crime to the trial of the accused. She examines grueling, pressure-packed police investigations in all their gritty detail - the sudden insight that can crack a case and the careless mistake that can jeopardize justice. Going behind closed doors, she reveals the strategies of both prosecution and defense as they maneuver towards a final verdict.
