The Last Detective

While Lucy is away on business and her ten-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, the boy vanishes without a trace.

But Cole's partner, Joe Pike, knows more about this case than he has said.

But instead of putting the drama to rest, the arrests are only the beginning of the trouble for Joe and Izzy.
