DI McLusky has settled into his new job in Bristol, but the severe freeze shows an unfamiliar side to the city. After the conviction of a drug baron earlier in the year, a new kingpin secures the hub of drug crime in Bristol. But how secure is he? A series of seemingly unconnected murders, accidents, and dying drug users slowly reveal the web of violence.
Narrow strips of a cut-up photograph arriving piecemeal at the Bristol Herald's offices may hold vital clues, but will the completed puzzle reach McLusky in time to prevent more deaths? The private lives of both McLusky and his rival DI Kat Fairfield take unexpected turns also, making the atmosphere at Albany Road station icier still.
McLusky is getting used to his transfer to Bristol, but now he and his officers have a big problem. Drug addicts are turning up dead, and the culprit is heroin which has been contaminated, some of it with anthrax virus. The police must track down this heroin before more people are killed. In the meantime, a few other people have also been murdered who turn out to be connected on the drug dealer side of the equasion. The police must find the connection between these people, and connect it to the tainted heroin. It’s a good book with a somewhat irritating McLusky, always going his own way, and a narrator who reads at a very slow pace. He does read well, though, and there are some extremely humorous, (dry humor, my favorite kind) points in the book.

Well written book. I actually experienced the freezing weather described by the author. Loved the ending!
