Above Suspicion: Deadly Intent was produced by La Plante Productions for transmission in 2011 and has been adapted from Lynda La Plante's novel Deadly Intent.
DI Anna Travis is back following her promotion and reunited with DCS James Langton and DCI Mike Lewis (Shaun Dingwall), who will be heading up his first murder case.
Following a fatal shooting in a notorious drug dealer's squat, the murder team quickly identify the victim as Frank Brandon - an ex-police officer from the drug squad, and friend of James Langton. Travis and the team begin the task of trying to connect the presence of their ex-colleague with such desperate and squalid surroundings. After further investigation Travis begins to uncover suspicious links between Brandon and the notorious drug-trafficker, Alexander Fitzpatrick, one of the most wanted men in the Western world. Operating under numerous aliases, he has eluded arrest for 20 years and there have been no sightings of him... until now.
Energised by her findings and with the body count mounting, it seems more likely that this infamous drug baron is back in the UK. Will they figure out Fitzpatrick's plan in time or will he be the one that got away....
