A bikie shoots a woman in a police siege, an elderly couple suicide outside their favourite café and the brother in law of detective Harry Belltree is stabbed to death in a street. Harry is off the grid and as he investigates he soon discovers that the claims by journalist Kelly Pool that the three incidents are linked are true.

Background to these swirling plots is the fatal car crash of his father, Mr Justice Belltree and his mother, with the blinding of his wife in the same accident. Or was it an accident? Child kidnapping and prostitution, political and police corruption, vile characters legal and otherwise make for an interesting story as Harry strives to right many wrongs in his own way.
