Following the Attorney General’s decree that there be a closer working relationship between the DPP and the Police, Chief Superintendent Jack Rizzoli (Vince Colosimo) is taking a very ‘hands on’ approach in the cases for prosecution, and especially Janet’s campaign to expose the truth behind a shocking murder that strikes at the very heart of the justice system. ★★★★ “… a slam-dunk brief for great viewing.” Deborah Grunfeld, Who Weekly Show of the Week 7/10 The Sun Herald, TV Liftout  ★★★★ “This reinvention of Crownies (it’s hard to call it a spin-off) has discarded its weaknesses and put it’s best on show.
