“Thought you were dead.” “Guess not.”
Episode One: Mort. Sam Hunter, an operative for the elite private intelligence and security firm Byzantium, is finishing a mission in Tangier when an attempt on her life leaves her critically injured. Not knowing who tried to kill her, she disappears to a remote location to recover, regroup and retrain. Returning to work unannounced nearly a year later, Sam surprises her co-workers, who are suspicious about her disappearance, especially Aidan Marsh, her secret lover. Her bosses, Rupert Keel and Deacon Crane, retain doubts about her, but need their best agent for an important new assignment. The team devises a plan to have Sam infiltrate a family headed by powerful millionaire Jack Turner, a man with a criminal past whose ambitions are at odds with Byzantium’s secret client.
