In Season 2, Detective Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon, Flashpoint) is on a career high after capturing serial killer Ray Prager. Unfortunately, his personal life is coming apart at the seams as his wife pleads for a divorce and his daughter struggles to come to terms with the anguish left behind by a killer. While investigating a new murder, Sweeney meets forensic psychiatrist
Dr. Pen Verrity (Michelle Forbes, True Blood; In Treatment) who soon infiltrates his life and his family finding himself caught in a game of cat and mouse.
