Synopsis

The British government has created the Counter-Measures group, a specialist team that investigates strange phenomena and dangerous technology.

This box set contains four of their adventures plus a behind-the-scenes documentary.

Manhunt

Written by Matt Fitton

Group Captain Gilmore is on the run for murder; Sir Toby is dealing with his unctuous new assistant, Templeton; and Allison and Rachel are investigating a bizarre series of deaths across the country. A maniac is on the loose, but for Counter-Measures it’s business as usual.

The Fifth Citadel

Written by James Goss

People are falling ill near Holborn and displaying a sickness with all the hallmarks of radiation poisoning. While Gilmore and Allison look into a graveyard, Sir Toby and Rachel venture underground to meet an old friend with a desperate scheme.

Peshka

Written by Cavan Scott & Mark Wright

A visit to an international chess tournament isn’t quite the relaxing experience the Counter-Measures team might have hoped for. With a defection to arrange and violence erupting on the streets it’s time for a dangerous gambit. What pieces will be left on the table when the Endgame approaches?

Sins of the Fathers

Written by John Dorney

When a massacre results from the ruins of an old case, it poses more questions than it answers. But with Sir Toby stonewalling, Gilmore and Rachel are forced to investigate alone. The past is catching up with Counter-Measures. With decades old secrets about to be revealed, can anyone survive the fallout?
