'The Gold Coast. Glamorous, sophisticated, a sun-drenched paradise. But beneath the coconut oil lies a hot-bed of crime. Everyone from drug smugglers and bikie gangs to radical eco-extremists and the person who invented frozen yoghurt. In order to tackle this seedy underbelly police authorities established a special unit. Known as “Pacific Heat”, this covert squad of highly trained operatives technically does not exist (although, for tax purposes, they do have an A.B.N.) but when there’s a crime that simply must be solved the ‘Pac Heat’ team will be there. Unconventional, uncompromising and with an arrest rate second to none, these guys are not afraid to operate outside the law – provided at least one of them is wearing a fluorescent safety vest.'
