A Sal Kilkenny Mystery set in Manchester.
Against the backdrop of Euro '96 and the soundtrack of Oasis, a summer of terror begins.
Sal Kilkenny has two very frightened clients on her hands. Debbie Gosforth is the victim of a deranged stalker while teenager Luke Wallace is afraid he might be a murderer as he has, allegedly, stabbed his best friend Ahktar Khan to death.
And then the IRA bomb Manchester's Arndale Centre and the city goes up in smoke...
