"When a mysterious new client Jon (Cooper) admits under hypnosis that he is a murderer and intends on killing another young female that evening, Susannah knows he must be stopped at all costs," reads the official synopsis.

"When he escapes before the police arrive and as Detective Superintendent Richard Grove (Miller) is refusing to take action, Susannah is forced to embark on her own deadly mission to save Sapphire's life, the way she couldn't do with her own daughter."

Further supporting cast for season two of Suspect includes Top Boy's Nicholas Pinnock and Notting Hill actor Gina McKee, plus Celine Buckens of Showtrial fame.
