DI Angus McGuire and the team are back and have their work cut out. Murdered prostitutes and a turf war between local gangsters takes the investigation into Bradford’s Immigrant communities where tensions run high.
To make matters worse McGuire is juggling an illicit relationship with his boss’s daughter and has fraught family relations..
When the body of a prostitute is found, followed by the discovery of children locked in an attic, DI Gus McGuire is handed the case.
But what at first appears to be a simple murder soon turns into an international manhunt for the members of a twisted child trafficking ring.
Detective Inspector Harry Virdee wasn't expecting this. But there's no denying that the body lying at his feet is her - Tara, his beloved niece. And although his boss is already removing him from the case, Harry knows there no such thing as too close.
He will stop at nothing to find the monster that killed his flesh and blood. But before he can, he must tell his brother the news.
The sky over Bradford is heavy with foreboding. It always is. But this morning it has reason to be - this morning a body has been found. And it's not just any body. Detective Harry Virdee should be at home with his wife.
Impending fatherhood should be all he can think about but he's been suspended from work just as the biggest case of the year lands on what would have been his desk.
A wrecking ball crashes through the roof of a terraced cottage in Bath and exposes a skeleton in eighteenth-century clothes.
Can these possibly be the remains of Beau Nash, the so-called King of Bath, whose body is said to have ended up in a pauper's grave? Peter Diamond, the city's most experienced detective, is ordered to investigate, but grappling with historical events causes ructions in his team until everyone is diverted by a modern killing during a fireworks display on the Royal Crescent lawn.
