Graham Hurley is at the forefront of British crime and he has written a particularly vivid and realistic novel of the overwhelming tide of 21st century crime.
The discovery of a headless corpse on the rocks below cliffs on the Isle of Wight is only the beginning of a journey for DI Joe Faraday to the centre of the grim trade in human cargo from the crippled societies of the Balkans. From cheap labour to prostitution, Portsmouth, like every other city in the UK is home to untold human misery; a black economy built on illegal immigration.
Joe Faraday is determined to find the real criminals that lie behind the tabloid hysteria.
Detective Constable Winter on the other hand is determinded only to find a way out of the disciplinary action that threatens his entire career. A burgeoning relationship with a young prostitute isn't exactly helping his cause.
