Roberta Steel has recently been demoted after being caught fitting up a suspect. The trouble is, the man she got sent down has had his sentence quashed - now he's back on the streets. And women are being attacked again. But if DS Steel goes anywhere near him his lawyers will get her thrown off the force for good. The Powers That Be won't listen to her - not after what happened last time. Besides, she's got more than enough ongoing cases to keep her busy - perhaps she should focus on solving them instead of harassing an innocent man? But Steel knows he's guilty and the longer he gets away with it, the more women will suffer. The question is: how much is she willing to sacrifice to stop him?
