Forensic crime drama series. The nanny of a Russian oligarch is killed in a botched assassination attempt. Nikki, Jack and Thomas investigate.

A shootout at a City hotel leaves young Ukrainian nanny Sofia Teplov dead, along with an unknown hitman. The Russian oligarch target Maksim Bazhanov narrowly escapes. Nikki and Jack work with young City DI Sarah Parks to ascertain the identity of the dead hitman and find out who is trying to kill Bazhanov and why.
