A phone call to Sarah Bone's mother hints at scandal long buried in the family's political past. What are the dark secrets surrounding Sarah's father, the man who abandoned his family when she was a child? What is the real relationship between Sarah's mother and her paternal grandfather, former Labour supremo, Sir Hugh? And, as Nick is drawn back into Nottingham's underworld, which of his old allegiances will place those closest to him in mortal danger?
