Paradise Yard explores addiction in fresh concept relevant to the life we lead today, sufferers no longer stereotyped but an eclectic mix from as many walks of life as their varying problems.

A lone wolf maverick GP with psychology degrees abandons her practice to devote to her burning quest of redefining therapy but faces conflict and obstacles from the hierarchy of conventional medicine and rivalry from established drug companies.

She is approached by local police to assist in the psychological and demographic profiling of an unknown offender and forms a strong bond with the two lead investigators in the team whilst unaware a killer lurks in her midst.

As contrast and diversion to the ongoing macro plot thirteen memorable characters have their own individual stories.

As this is a series there are also spin off stories of a detective from USA and a British Inspector.
