First-year detective Kathleen Doyle is a plucky Irish redhead of humble origins and modest means. Chief Inspector Michael Acton is her antithesis: a British lord turned cop.

Acton selects Doyle out of the newbie squad to partner with him on a series of investigations because she always knows when someone is lying-- a trait that comes in handy when interviewing suspects and witnesses.

But the real danger is the unlikely attachment that develops between the ultrareserved, aristocratic chief inspector and his spirited, working-class sidekick
