Meet Inspector Alan Banks, a civilized detective with a zest for life and a fascination for opera, Tudor history, and bright and beautiful women, one of whom happens to be his wife.

Newly arrived from London, Chief Inspector Alan Banks finds himself at the center of a small-town outrage over police failure to apprehend a peeping Tom who loves watching the local ladies prepare for bed. Anger quickly turns to panic when an elderly lady is found brutally murdered. But for big-city cop Banks, the mini crime wave in the quiet Yorkshire countryside becomes a major personal crisis when both his wife and his beautiful psychologist partner are drawn into the crime drama ... and Banks is faced with choices he hoped he'd never have to make.
