Lynda La Plante, creator of the award-winning Prime Suspect -- widely regarded as the ultimate intelligent crime drama -- scores again with Trial & Retribution. From the scene of the crime to the tactics in the courtroom, these British thrillers explore the bitter internal rivalries among police investigators, the political pressures of high-profile cases, and the legal maneuverings of defense attorneys and prosecutors. As always, La Plante plumbs the emotional depths of her characters with dark and often disturbing results. In these riveting feature-length mysteries, the police probe an abandoned house concealing multiple murders; a dysfunctional family with a deeply troubled musical prodigy; the mysterious disappearance of a well-connected woman; and a shadowy sex club for London's elite. The series stars David Hayman, Kate Buffery, and Victoria Smurfit, with guest stars Charles Dance, Gemma Jones, Ben Cross, Tim McInnerny, and Simon Callow. Special features include interviews, text descriptions of the Criminal Investigation Department, and a biography of La Plante. This set contains four Trial & Retribution telefilms that aired on Britain's ITV from 2002-4.
