After their adventure in the Australian Outback, Elliot and Helen travel to Ireland. In an attempt to rediscover Elliot’s roots following his memory loss, they’re dragged into the dangerous whirlwind of his past life and are confronted by friends and foes both old and new, including Niamh Cassidy and the McDonnell family. Detective Ruairi Slater becomes embroiled in the crossfire between the McDonnells and the Cassidys as the secrets of the family rivalry unravel.

Elliot and Helen arrive in Ireland after receiving an invitation to meet an old friend, Tommy, whom they hope will be able to provide answers about Elliot’s old life. But the couple are soon separated when Elliot is violently kidnapped. Held captive in a hidden location, he comes face to face with the McDonnell family, resentful enemies from his past, seeking revenge for actions that he can’t remember.

Meanwhile, Helen, terrified that Elliot is in danger, teams up with Detective Sergeant Ruairi Slater to track him down — a search that will have them cross paths with someone she’s not ready to meet. Back in Australia, Ethan decides to win Helen’s heart back.
