Kelly Reilly, Ciaran Hinds and company are back for the fourth and final series based on Lynda La Plante's hugely successful crime novels, Above Suspicion. Silent Scream finds DCS James Langton (Hinds) enraged at having lost a bid for promotion, certain that someone has sold him out. That doesn’t make for the most supportive teamwork as DI Anna Travis (Reilly) and crew investigate the brutal murder of an acclaimed young film actress. The victim, Amanda Delaney, had secrets, lots of them. And enemies, lots of them too. But what she also appeared to have, among the married men and their angry wives, jealous actors and hard-edged directors, was someone who wanted something more, something more than she could give. An already tense team find themselves at the mercy of suspects many of whose very profession is one of deception. When you add envy, wild passion and desperate addiction into the mix, you find a case that is stirring up too much interest and too great a risk to all involved. The way things stand, there will be more than one victim before the final curtain falls on Silent Scream.
