Murder. Extortion. Policemen Rose and Swift have dealt have with both. But when Steve Gardiner gets himself into hot water, Rose must do some quick thinking before he and Swift find themselves engulfed in mayhem of a different variety.
Jake Justice is a very determined man. When he wants CI Rose to reopen an unsolved case, the CID man has no option but to do so. At least that's what Justice believes - but then Rose is equally determined to allow the law to run its own course.
