Chief Supt. Fred Baker is pushing hard to solve the brutal beatings, one fatal, of three men, only one of whom is identified. A tip points to two male teens as the culprits, but the police overlook other potential suspects. Quinn, King, and Wells all court danger as they interact with the despicable Ram. Brief, sordid stories of grooming victims alternate with the investigation into the beating victims. The clumsily contrived ending disappoints. All rights reserved. Fast-talking enemies must join forces to stop the leader of a child prostitution ring from striking again.
The ice queen of her department, DI Sarah Quinn is the one person in Birmingham willing to stand up to her chief when she disagrees with his calls. So, she senses that she's approaching a familiar position when she feels that things are moving a little fast with their latest case. The streets of the city are doubtless a little cleaner once a set of youths are picked up for suspected links to apparently random attacks throughout the city.
While they're certainly guilty of some smaller crimes, could they be responsible for something worse? Sarah can't help seeking a victory to make up for the failure to convict Jas Ram, who's gone free even though he was patently guilty of corrupting children into prostitution. Journalist Caroline King, equally convinced of Ram's guilt, intends to use his release to her advantage, interviewing him and his victims for what she hopes will become a best-seller. Although Caroline and Sarah often fight on opposite sides of the same battles, what happens next forces the two enemies into an uneasy truce as both use Caroline's sources to figure out whether there's a connection between the prostitution ring and the street attacks.
