Follows Detective Inspector Bob Berger and his Flying Squad team as they plan and carry out a dangerous undercover operation to capture James Doyle, one of Britain's youngest and most dangerous criminals, who was convicted of a string of armed raids on banks and building societies in London. Operation Crozon, as it became known, had no informants and few leads, but relied on security films to build a profile of the six-man gang and their tactics. Eventually, an officer identifies one of the criminals, and a stolen car is followed to an area near a large bank. But the officers suspect the gang have spotted them.
