"...an excellent read for those who enjoy a tightly written police procedural."
There is a burglary at Harrowfield mortuary and the body of 30 year old Kirsty Gallagher is missing.
Nearby, uniform police are searching the canal along with a small diving squad, following the discovery of some clothes by the bank side. The body of a naked man is hoisted from the murky depths. His ankles are tied by a piece of rope connected to concrete.
Kirsty's decomposing corpse is eventually found and an arrest is made which leads to a network of men whom D.I Jack Dylan can only describe as reprobates.
