Mike Pannett used to work the beat in Central London - tackling drugs and knife crime - so when he moved back to Yorkshire he was hoping for a quieter life. But it seems the moors and villages of his native county aren't as sleepy as he once thought...A casual remark about a barn with blacked-out windows leads him to an isolated farmhouse and a young girl is attacked at a local theme park. Meanwhile, Mike is still trying to identify and bring to justice the 'Sunset Gang' who are systematically targeting isolated warehouses and shops on his patch. On the home front, Ann has moved into Keeper's Cottage and taken a Sergeant's post in York - and people are asking Mike what it's like to be a kept man.
