A gripping five part crime thriller by Barbara Machin, the creator of BBC1's Waking The Dead, this radio prequel to the Emmy-winning, hit TV series welcomes back the original cast, Sue Johnston, Holly Aird, Claire Goose and Wil Johnson. THE UNFORGIVEN leaps back fifteen years, revealing how the iconic team got together before they became an official cold case unit - dragged together to save a disappeared DC Peter Boyd from definite disgrace, and possible prison.

It is 1984, a world without DNA, CCTV, mobiles, the internet and databases. Big trouble erupts as a serial killer-rapist launches a huge legal appeal against his conviction, claiming police corruption, and pointing the finger directly at young DC Peter Boyd - and implicating forensic scientist, Frankie Wharton. The clock ticks loudly, there are just five days to save their necks and to stop the notorious killer's acquittal. With Boyd forced to disappear, Grace, the criminal profiler, and cops Spencer and Mel, join Frankie to clear their names and save their skins. They all owe Boyd in different ways, and a heart-stopping case ensues as the unthinkable unfolds.
