Description

When a young boy and then a girl are cruelly murdered within a few days of each other, Handford and Ali uncover not only the desperate plight of children trapped in Bradford's harsh criminal underworld, but murderous corruption and twisted minds in the most respected sections of the community. Handford and Ali form a distinctly uneasy partnership against a background of urban and racial tensions, and struggle daily to repress their mutual suspicion. But they must put aside their differences and, with the rest of their team, probe into the dark and seedy lives of those who hold positions of trust, and stop a cold-blooded serial killer from fulfilling his dreadful mission. But the culprit may be closer than they think...show more
