Bulletproof Plot: What’s It About?
Aaron Bishop and Ronnie Pike work as detectives in the National Crime Agency in London. The strong bond between them comes not only from their work relationship but also from a friendship that has developed since they were children. Sharing the same work ethics and treading a similar thought process when it comes to catching criminals and bringing them to justice, the differences in their backgrounds is the only thing that separates as well as complements them.
While Pike has his father’s legacy to live up to, Bishop doesn’t know much about his own family. Growing up in foster homes and moving from one place to another has given him a perspective about street life that Pike doesn’t have. Pike’s father is a big name in the police department and currently serves as the Director General of the NCA. This background has allowed Pike a peek into the bureaucracy of the system. He sometimes suffers from the pressure of his father’s reputation and wants to surpass it, in order to not live in his shadow. Together, Bishop and Pike form a formidable team that takes on dangerous criminals on the streets of London.
