He's been dragged out of retirement for this one last thing. You know the deal. This is the thing that happens when you know it's gonna get good.

Hardy's white whale has escaped from prison — serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) has bunked off without so much as a note from his mum.

To figure out the mind of this killer and get him back, Hardy finds Carroll's ex-wife, Claire (Natalie Zea), and enlists her to help understand his serial killer psyche.
