DSI Lorimer is back with a brand new case. And the stakes have never been so high . . .
When his old friend and former colleague is shot dead at his home, Detective Superintendent William Lorimer is devastated. And his problems are only just beginning. It's not long before two further deaths are reported: both victims ex-policemen.
