It's the year 2000. Newly appointed Detective Constable Dave Slater has spent the evening at home congratulating himself on getting through his first two days as a detective without mishap, but as he climbs into bed, his phone starts to ring.
It's a distress call from a friend in need, and Slater rushes to offer assistance, but soon finds he's been called out to a murder scene. The obvious suspect is the friend in need, but Slater can’t believe the gentle, harmless, Timmy Hopkins could possibly be capable of such a heinous crime.
