Specter is a bereavement counselor who is married to the neonatal nurse, Sally Ann (Bronagh Waugh). Together they have two children: Olivia (Sarah Beattie) and Liam (David Beattie). Somewhere along the line however something went wrong and Specter started stalking and ultimately killing young, professional women in and around Belfast.
Trying to catch him is Detective Superintended from MET Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson), a senior investigating officer who travels across from London to Belfast. She was seconded to the Police Service of Northern Ireland in order to assess the progress of a murder investigation which has remained unclosed for more than 28 days. Upon realizing that the murderer they are dealing with is an actual psychopath and a serial killer, Gibson decides to accept a semi-permanent job to supervise Operation Music-Man.
This psychological thriller examines the lives of the two hunters: the detective and the murderer as it progresses in the story. In order to make the show even more interesting the hero and the anti-hero are presented in an antithesis kind of way for we have Specter, who lives such a normal live thus being even more threating and terrifying for he could be any other regular Joe down the street. Opposing the seemingly normal live that Specter has, Det. Gibson has sacrificed everything in her personal life for her profession.
