Lawless: Dead Evidence

Jodie Keane finds ex-undercover cop, John Lawless, working in a seedy bar and persuades him to help her with an investigation. Tough Texan Dean Riley is in jail for murder, but his wife Trina is adamant he stands wrongly accused. When Lawless learns his old enemy Inspector Snow headed the original enquiry, he sees a chance to get even and joins the investigation.

When another girl is found murdered, Lawless believes there's a connection to the earlier case ? and that Dean must be innocent. But the police refuse to re-open the case and Lawless and Jodie focus on finding the real killer. Tracked and cornered, the murderer takes Jodie prisoner and as her captor psychologically unravels, Jodie prays Lawless will arrive in time to save her...
