The central character is Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Vera Stanhope of the fictional Northumberland & City Police who is obsessive about her work and driven by her own demons.

Her trusted and long-suffering colleague is Detective Sergeant (DS) Joe Ashworth, her right-hand man and surrogate son.
