Great crime-drama, in a unique setting
3 April 2018 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Sergeant Jo McDonagh is a member of the Special Investigations Branch of the Military Police in the British Army. Her unit is stationed in Germany. The unit's role is to investigate serious crimes, often murders, involving the British Army.

Great crime-drama. Certainly not your average crime-drama, as it is set in a military base and the crimes involve British Army soldiers (as victims, or perpetrators, or both). Brings together a military setting with detective work - what could be better?

Good plots, all filled with a decent amount of intrigue and suspense, plus some good character depth make for a great series.
