Detective Inspector Carol Jordan hopes his skill as a profiler will crack the case, but Tony's off-beat methods cause others to dismiss him. When a cop is killed, the pressure for results mounts.

      • The phrase "the wire in the blood" comes from Burnt Norton (1935), the first of the Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot:

        The trilling wire in the blood
        sings below inveterate scars
        appeasing long-forgotten wars.
        The dance along the artery
        the circulation of the lymph
        are figured in the drift of stars

        Show star Robson Green claims that the phrase means a genetic defect that might lead to the kind of psychosis his character deals with. However, novelist Val McDermid took the line as a metaphor for the thrill of adrenaline surging through the bloodstream.
