Set in contemporary Sydney, two Senior Sergeant Detectives, Luther James and Rochelle Trevelyan, are tasked with solving a series of seemingly unrelated murders and capturing a violent serial killer. Under great pressure to solve the "Slasher case", the two partners seek the connection between the death of a Chinese immigrant dockworker, an out-of-work photographer, and a nondescript married pharmacist before more grisly deaths occur.
There are no leads until the detectives come across Marissa Martin, a beautiful, self destructive witness with a shadowy past who has become another target.
As more victims are discovered, the violence begins to seep into the Luther and Rochelle's lives. The detectives set out to wade through the clues and prove themselves before it is too late.
