Series 2 of Amelia Bullmore's Police Drama 'Craven', starring Maxine Peake as Sue Craven returns to Radio 4.

As impending cuts threaten the staff of the Greater Manchester Police Murder Investigation Team, a case involving dangerous dogs and legal drugs piques DCI Craven's interest.

Her boss, DCI Price (James Quinn) warns Craven to concentrate on the bigger stories that might just save the staff, but Craven has other plans and dog loving Terry Bird, (David Crellin) puts old grievances aside to take on the case.

Craven is determined to prove that the dog bite murder of a homeless man, is part of a new wave of organised crime and the 'legal' drugs on sale at the Pet Shop is somehow linked. Her Boss DI Price has other plans and with DS Watende Robinson afraid of dogs, bending the rules won't be easy.

Producer: Justine Potter
A Red production for BBC Radio 4.
