Fifteen years in the past...Detective Chief Inspector Bob Skinner investigates a brutal death. A man lies at the deep end of an empty swimming pool, his neck broken and almost every other bone in his body shattered. Soon, an organised crime connection looms, and bloody retribution spreads to a second city. Then, a vicious knifeman seems to be targeting Edinburgh's gay population. This double dose of homicide challenges a single man with a teenage daughter to raise and protect. Skinner is faced with a decision - which crime lord is the lesser of two evils? Torn between two lovers, each with her own agenda, how far will Skinner go to find resolution? Can he stay on the side of the angels, or will he fall...?
