This multi-award winning series follows the day to day activities of four detectives with the Homicide squad of a big city police force. They do handle other crimes - kidnapping, extortion, conspiracy - but mainly murder. Their success rate is very high…nearly eighty percent. They're at home anywhere. They have to be. Back alleys, boardrooms, brothels and beach houses…Murders happen everywhere.
