The ten-part series brings fact and fiction together as bestselling thriller writer Simon Toyne, author of The Boy Who Saw and other titles, meets other top UK crime writers to discuss how their works of fiction have been inspired by real life crimes. Each episode delves into a different criminal case using reconstruction, real life footage, interviews with senior police officers who worked on the cases, along with family members, key witnesses, and other experts.
