Season 2

DC Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly) is back, reunited with the inimitable DCI James Langton (Ciarán Hinds), to face her most challenging and terrifying case yet.

When the body of a young woman is discovered by the Thames, sadistically mutilated and drained of blood, it would seem an ominous re-enactment of the infamously unsolved murder, from 1940s Los Angeles, dubbed The Black Dahlia.

Travis races to stay one step ahead of the killer, using the case as some sort of instruction manual. Meanwhile, the underlying sexual friction between Travis and Langton threatens to derail the investigation, while Anna's choices in her personal life could be career damaging.

However, Langton and Anna must pull together to stop this depraved copycat killer before they strike again. As they close in on their suspect, and the case reaches its shocking conclusion, they uncover a world of sadistic cruelty and a murderous secret.

The three part drama, Above Suspicion: The Red Dahlia, is adapted by Lynda La Plante from her successful second novel about rookie detective, Anna Travis. It is produced by La Plante Productions for ITV1.

Kelly Reilly returns to the role of Anna Travis. Ciarán Hinds stars as her boss, the volatile Detective Chief Inspector James Langton.

They are joined by Shaun Dingwall as Detective Inspector Mike Lewis, Celyn Jones as Detective Sergeant Paul Barolli, Michelle Holmes as Detective Constable Barbara Maddox and Amanda Lawrence as Detective Constable Joan Faukland.

Guest stars in the new season include Simon Williams, Sylvia Syms, Holliday Grainger, Edward Bennett and Hannah Murray.
