Chiwetel Ejiofor and Christopher Eccleston play two men on very different sides of the law investigating the same murder of gangland boss Harvey Wratte in The Shadow Line.
Ejiofor plays Jonah Gabriel, a detective suffering amnesia after being shot in a previous operation. Unsure of his own moral compass, Gabriel has to follow an increasingly complicated line of investigation, all the while wondering whether he can trust anyone, not least, himself.
Also investigating the death is Joseph Bede (Eccleston), an associate of Wratten’s, who has built up a legitimate fruit and flower business during Harvey’s time in prison.
Now, driven by a profound personal tragedy, Joseph finds himself planning one last deal: a massive drugs operation that he is desperate to see through, so he can retire and step out of the business for ever.
