'Your father is dead'
Detective Superintendent Jeff Barton has to deal with tragedy within his own family that comes as more than just a shock. For professional reasons, he's told he can't investigate the case but can he really trust the officer who is put in charge? There are rumours about the man's reputation but are they justified? And will he get the answers that Barton and the rest of his family need?

Meanwhile, Barton's deputy, DCI Ollie Wright, takes over the team whilst Barton is on compassionate leave. He's thrown straight in at the deep end when a young teenage couple are shot dead in the boys living room. The boys father is one of Manchester's leading criminal defence lawyers and Wright becomes convinced that there's a link between that and the murder. Wright also has to contend with apparently small scale personal intimidation which starts when the paintwork on his car is purposely scratched. Someone is close and wants to make him nervous for the safety of himself and his family. But who and why?

Barton begins to work secretly with Wright as more murders take place and the streets of Manchester have never felt more dangerous to him.

Someone is out there who thinks they have a reason to kill.

But is Barton their ultimate target?
