British film star Amanda Delany has the world at her feet. Young and talented, she has a string of affairs with the hottest actors around. The tabloids can't get enough of her and she, in turn, can't get enough of the spotlight.
Then, late home one evening from a night shoot, Amanda puts the key in her front door for the very last time. The next morning, the press has gathered on her doorstep once again, this time to report on her brutal murder.
DI Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly) is shocked by what she finds, especially when she discovers the truth behind Amanda's glamorous public image. For all her fame and fortune, it seems Amanda Delany was lonely, damaged and afraid. But who would want to take her life?
While Travis and the team, headed by the ever demanding DCS James Langton (Ciarán Hinds), grapple to track down Amanda's killer, Travis has challenges of her own to overcome.
Above Suspicion: Silent Scream, is produced by La Plante Productions for ITV1. The drama is directed by Catherine Morshead and produced by Cherry Gould. The executive producers are Lynda La Plante and Liz Thorburn.
