Another outing for Birmingham Detective Sergeant Bev Morriss - and she is having to cope without her guv. Detective Superintendent Bill Byford is awaiting the outcome of an internal inquiry. A young boy is found dead on a piece of waste ground. Finding his killer becomes priority.
Other deaths quickly follow. Unfortunately those deaths include witnesses the police are anxious to trace. Why are they being killed before the police can get to them? Who is leaking information?
