A shootout at a city hotel leaves young Ukrainian nanny Sofia Teplov dead, along with an unknown hitman.
Russian oligarch Maksim Bazhanov – the target – narrowly escapes the attack. Nikki and Jack work with young City DI Sarah Parks to identity the dead hitman as they try to discover who is trying to kill Bazhanov and why.
Jack is drawn to Sarah, whose daughter has a rare childhood cancer, and is impressed by her ability to juggle work and family.
The discovery of the hitmen’s identity as ex-army frustrates the team as they realise that he could have been hired by any number of paymasters.
