Featuring contemporary crime stories told with warmth and humour, McDonald & Dodds follows the investigations of a wildly mismatched detective duo, against the backdrop of Britain’s most traditional city.
Newly promoted, the ambitious DCI McDonald has swapped the mean streets of London to leap up the career ladder in picturesque Bath. A tough, driven, battering ram of a cop, McDonald cracks cases through sheer force of will. When she’s partnered with veteran sergeant Dodds, the pair instantly lock horns over their different approaches to policing – and to life.
The tortoise to her hare, Dodds is quiet and unassuming, with a hidden talent for deciphering puzzles. But this new double act, thrown together with seemingly nothing in common, soon forge a rumbustious, entertaining and ultimately – give or take a few setbacks – effective partnership.
Faced with a greed-fuelled murder in the upper echelons of Bath society and an unexplained death in a hospital for recovering addicts, McDonald and Dodds soon realise that their differences will be their strength when it comes to solving these gripping mysteries.
