The coroner's report identifies the body as young, black, female, and anonymous. Yet one thing is clear to DCI Jane Tennison about the latest victim discovered in one of London's poorest districts - that news of her murder will tear apart a city already crackling with racial tension, hurling Scotland Yard and Tennison herself into a maelstrom of shocking accusations and wrenching violence.
Even as London's brutal killer remains at large, Tennison is locked in a struggle to overcome her station house's chauvinism and ruthless politicking. And as the department's deeply rooted racism rears its head to overshadow every facet of her new investigation, the trail of her prime suspect is growing colder. Worse, when the details of the beleaguered detective's steamy personal life explode across the headlines of London's sleaziest tabloids, Tennison's already frenzied determination to bring the killer to justice will be catapulted into obsession.
