This series follows the antics of an eccentric group of ex-police officers brought out of retirement to reinvestigate unsolved crimes. They each had a variety of reasons for handing over their badges and accepting premature retirement. But their hunger to right the wrongs of the past is still strong, and they're willing to resort to the most unconventional methods if it means they can close a case.
