A cash-in-transit raid goes pear-shaped when armed polices show up. After all the smart planning and careful preparation someone must have talked – so think the relatives and friends of the jailed gang members. And it looks like the grass must have been the only raider to escape the trap. A vengeance squad is on the prowl and DCS Colin Harpur and his boos, ACC Desmond Iles, are given the job of hiding and protecting the informant and his family.
Yet all the time the lynch mob is closing in, aided and abetted by the reckless behaviour of the informant himself. Harpur and Iles find they have their toughest assignment to date – resolved in the most brutal and astonishing turnaround even they have ever seen.
