About DI Temple
In 1984 Temple discovered his mother dead. She had been brutally murdered. Temple is a man on a mission to find her killer, it’s his raison d’être. It’s why he joined the police. But his reason for living also includes his wife and daughter. He’ll stop at nothing to protect his family, but that’s difficult when he’s estranged from them. His personal quest makes him difficult to live with and difficult to work with. The past is like a millstone around his neck; a weakness for strawberry blondes only makes matters worse.

In her working life, Deb has been able to work alongside a number of senior investigating officers as they’ve investigated major crime, murder, missing persons, abduction and kidnaps. She’s been at the 7am starts and 3am finishes, the ‘golden hour’s’, the highs, the lows, the breakthroughs, arrests, the slog. The politics.
