In Eastvale, a Middle Eastern boy is murdered and his body dumped, and Detective Superintendent Banks and his team know they must tread carefully to solve this sensitive case. Then, in a decayed part of town scheduled for redevelopment, a heroin addict is found dead. Was this just another tragic overdose or something darker? In his 26th investigation (after Careless Love), Banks must find answers quickly. Yet just when he needs to be his sharpest, the seasoned detective finds himself distracted by a close friend's increasingly precarious situation. He needs a break, and solving this case may come at a terrible cost.
