It should be an easy solve: a murder in broad daylight with two eyewitnesses. But the victim is the son of a notorious local crime family who has a habit of hitting on other men's wives; the witnesses are Serbian nationals who speak limited English.
For DCI Warren Jones, this is his most challenging case yet. As the suspects pile up, the victim's family work to protect their son's memory by destroying any evidence that could betray his criminal past - or might have led to his killer.
Somehow Warren must uncover the truth about the murder - but there are secrets at the heart of the case more dangerous than anyone could have imagined, and the fallout could tear Warren's team apart
