More Description

When thirteen-year-old drug runner Mandy Walsh is killed in a shootout between rival drug gangs, the police at first think she was accidentally caught in the crossfire. But soon they learn that someone shot her intentionally, and as Detective Chief Superintendent Colin Harpur looks deeper the case only gets more dangerous.

For Chief Constable Mark Lane, a man almost paralyzed by the collapse of civilization he sees in the relentless drug wars the only solution to the evil is for someone to infiltrate the gangs. His sardonic assistant chief, Desmond Iles has another solution: let the gangland police itself, in return for a few favors. Meanwhile, Mansel Shale, drug kingpin, would-be top banana, is looking for -- and may have found -- a working arrangement with someone on the police force. A relentless chain of events starting with Mandy's death, comes to an exciting and unexpected conclusion.

Bill James has recently been named a "Master of Crime" in a mystery roundup by the London Sunday Times, which said "There is nothing else quite like this series of police procedurals. James is concerned with the dilemmas and difficulties of policing Britain's inner cities, and he addresses these in hard-edged narratives that leave readers gasping and flinching, praying the people in these stories never come to live in their streets."
