Demoted for a hunch about a case that he wouldn’t let go, John Cardinal is brought back to the Homicide Unit when the body of a missing teenager is discovered, proving his instincts correct. Back on the case, Cardinal’s search for the murderer soon becomes an all-consuming race to stay ahead of a serial killer.
Meanwhile, he must right past wrongs that threaten to derail the investigation and end his whole career – all whilst keeping a watchful eye on his new partner Lise. Does she have a secret agenda of her own?
Adapted from author Giles Blunt’s award-winning Forty Words for Sorrow, the first of the John Cardinal Mysteries book series, Cardinal is written for television by Audrey Nealon and Russ Cochrane.
