Banished to the Stock Squad after his involvement in a police frame up, one-time golden boy DSC Cato Kwong is given a final chance at redemption. When the Great Southern Ocean washes up a headless torso, Cato is called in from the cold and sent to the remote mining town of Hopetoun, Western Australia to investigate.

Radio 4 drama

Disgraced, former golden boy of the police service, DSC Cato Kwong is brought in from the cold to investigate a washed up headless corpse in the remote mining town of Hopetoun, Western Australia. It's Cato's one final shot at getting his career back on track. Only his open-and-shut case is proving to be more complex than he'd hoped; drugs, murder, exploitation combined with false confessions, Chinese whispers and framed suspects. The truth seems far from straightforward. But Cato's investigation is about to take another dark turn, and crimes from the past are brought to light.
