"Why did fourteen year old Helen Bassam fall to her death from a tower block? A gesture of despair? Or does the blurred, shadowy figure of a young boy captured on the block's CCTV system have a role in the tragedy?" "D/I Joe Faraday is determined the dead girl will be accorded at least the dignity of an understood death. He plunges into Portsmouth's bleak netherworld of wrecked families and children cast adrift in a society too fragmented to care. But almost before the investigation gets started Faraday finds resources haemorrhaging away from him." "The body of a small-time dealer has been found hanging, naked but for a pair of lacy red knickers, from a tree on waste-ground in the city. The powers-that-be scent a PR victory in the never-ending war on drugs: get a result on this and maybe the Police can be seen to be making a difference." "The head of the Major Crimes Squad couldn't care less about PR: he just wants to make it clear to the killer that you don't brag about your handiwork on his patch and get away with it. He pulls in all the manpower he can get. On the team is D/C Paul Winter. Getting his hands dirty, trying not to think about the death of his wife."--BOOK JACKET
