AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Inspired by true events, Stingers reveals the shadowy and ambiguous world of undercover cops — people with covert lives and constantly changing identities. They are police who defeat crime from within the criminal world — always without a badge and frequently without protection. The series follows the lives of the operatives as they befriend and betray those on the other side of the law. For these select few, it is a deadly way of life.The undercover cops of Stingers are a unique breed. They must juggle their own lives — love, laughter, family and humanity — with the tension of the criminal personas they adopt in their passion for justice.'

'Church is hamstrung when an illegal poker game he's involved in is run through by a gang of crooks — among them, his colleague, Leo Flynn who is working undercover with armed robber Damien Broadbent. Back at PHQ, Flynn comes clean to Church and hands back part of the haul (an expensive engagement ring) on one proviso — the cops can't pressure Broadbent for their booty as it could blow his cover and put his life at risk. Church agrees, but when Anna Trukan finds the ring, she believes Church is offering his hand in marriage. Without the heart to tell her otherwise, and with Broadbent demanding that Flynn gets the ring back, Church is pulled from all sides.'
