It was all in the papers. Mandy Walsh had been gunned down, caught in the crossfire between two rival drug gangs. Mandy was a drug runner: she was also just thirteen years old. For shattered idealist Chief Constable Mark Lane, the only solution to this evil is to infiltrate the drug gangs. His sardonic assistant chief, Desmond Iles, has another solution: let the gangland police itself in return for a few favors. And Mansel Shale, drug kingpin, wants nothing more than a working arrangement with the police -- anything that will make him top banana in his dark, perilous world. Then Detective Chief Superintendent Colin Harpur looks harder into Mandy's death and the game turns darker. It seems there was a third shooter: one targeting Mandy.
