A DS Glyn Capaldi Mystery DS Glyn Capaldi is in hospital recuperating from concussion and the after-effects of a serious car crash.
Worse than that, the young woman travelling in the car with him that night is dead. Glyn is initially riven with guilt, until he starts to question the possibility that it may not have been an accident.
But, if that is the case, who was the target? Has he made an enemy capable of achieving that level of planning? Or, if not him, what could a young woman have possibly done to warrant such harsh punishment? As he explores the background to these questions, Glyn uncovers a conspiracy that envelops arson, torture, blackmail, and leaves a clutter of bodies that further muddy the already deep dark waters.
