Synopsis

How does an average person recognise evil or crime? Does it have a badge; is it a certain look in a person's eye? Can it be told from the person's clothes, race, religion or gender?

What makes certain people challenge evil while some run away from it? Is it that people are born inherently good or evil or is it situations and society that makes them so; that moulds them into the being they are?

Are certain races or genders more inclined to certain crimes than others? What makes a man rape, kill or maim another human being and show no remorse?

These are the questions that Joseph Ndlovu asks himself on a daily basis, probably before he has finished his first of many cups of coffee.

The story is set in Johannesburg and revolves around the office of Inspector Joseph Ndlovu of the Serious & Violent Crimes Unit. Actual cases are explored and weaved into fictional narratives to keep the series relevant, fresh and resonant.

Early on in the series Joseph's wife tragically dies; the victim of a horrific accident. Her death sets the tone of the series. Initially nothing appears to be amiss regarding his wife's accident but slowly details regarding her accident and death are revealed.

Joseph receives intimate details of his wife's last minutes during the course of the series, details only someone who watched her die would know. Eventually there is just too much collaborating evidence and his wife's death is put down as murder and not an accident.

Suddenly Joseph's life is turned upside down. He is the primary suspect in his wife's murder case. His life spirals downwards, he starts losing control of his department at work, he becomes reclusive and loses his daughter as he also gets over protective over her.

Over and above his normal duties Joseph continues to trace and attempt to solve the one crime that has eluded him; his wife's murder.

He receives emails and items in the mailbox which belonged to his wife. Joseph realises that he is being stalked; he doesn't know who to trust anymore. The people he confides in die. Colleagues and close friends fall prey to the stalker.

Will Joseph clear his name and get the murderer behind bars?
