George Gently - an incorruptible, uncompromising cop transplanted from London's
Scotland Yard to England's North Country in the mid-1960's. Gently's reputation
for honesty and relentlessness make him almost as feared among his colleagues
as he is among criminals. But he finds an odd ally in John Bacchus (Lee

plays fast and loose with police procedures. Together the two tackle cases
involving murderers, drug dealers, gun runners, and more. Gently is about to
discover a whole new world of murder and intrigue in 1960s Britain, a place
where everything is about to change, but the past is always present.
