Eve Myles returns as Faith Howells, the much-loved lawyer, wife and mother whose life was turned upside down by the unexplained disappearance of her husband, Evan (Bradley Freegard).
Now, 18 months later, Faith is drawn into a new mystery as she takes on the case of Madlen Vaughan (Aimee-Ffion Edwards), a local farmer accused of murdering her husband in cold blood. The murder trial, the prospect of Evan’s imminent release from prison, and her conflicted emotions towards former criminal Steve Baldini (Mark Lewis Jones) push her to breaking point.
She puts her children, her business and her life on the line to search for the truth and finally emerges scarred yet stronger.
Again the themes are family, love, loyalty and trust; the West Wales coastline provides that unique contrast of beauty and darkness and the acting is raw and intimate: all the trademarks of the first series that broke BBC iPlayer records.
