When Connor Clive Blaydon is found dead, DCI Alan Banks and his Yorkshire team dive into the investigation—their 27th, after Many Rivers to Cross. As they review the spy-cams in this luxurious home, the grainy and blurred footage reveals another crime: a brutal rape. If they can discover the woman's identity, it could lead to justice for the victim, and perhaps the dead man. Tensions also rise between Banks and his friend, Zelda, whose uncommon gift for recognizing faces is putting her life in danger.
