When a spate of shootings claims one of Ronnie and Joe's own, Wes Leyton, the pair are left with a race against time as the next target the shooter has in his cross-hairs is CPS boss Henry Sharpe.
Wes is shot at point blank range in his car by a biker and soon afterwards another policeman Archie Morris and women's refuge worker Susan Lewiston are slain in the same way. CCTV footage links the rider to one Patrick Benton but all the victims had played a part in arresting wife-killer Mark Glendon and Henry, who was prosecutor, is taken to a safe house. Glendon is in prison but the prosecutors press ahead with accusing him of organizing the murders from his cell, especially as it transpires that Benton is Glendon's son, now adopted and renamed. Benton is pulled in but gives the police nothing to help them. The case goes ahead and the jury gives its verdict but then something unexpected happens.
DS Ronnie Brooks and DS Joe Hawkins find themselves investigating a string of murders, all committed by the same solitary motorcyclist. The first death is close to home while the second is that of policeman Archie Morris. That is quickly followed by social worker Susan Lewiston. The common thread among the three was the conviction of Mark Glendon for murdering his wife but he is soon to be retried after his conviction was deemed to be unsound. The police act quickly to protect the Crown prosecutor in the original case, Henry Sharpe. Glendon's daughter will gladly testify against him again but his son, who is the shooter, insists he acted on his own without his father's involvement. With a dwindling list of witnesses however, getting a conviction the second time around will be extremely difficult.
