The First Time Ever

Ted’s wanted to be a copper since he was nine. Can he find a new opening within the force which is his surrogate family?
Despite being trained to shoot to kill, Ted’s good with people. They like him, they trust him, so they talk to him. His skills get him noticed and he’s seconded to help with a big CID operation. It isn’t long before he’s facing his first murder case.
