Synopsis

'Ruthlessly efficient, entertainment. Pedigree fun' - The Times

Discover the darkness that lurks around every corner in the latest instalment of the award-winning Grace series, now a major ITV series.

A ruthless crime. A race against time.

In the dead of night, a farmer confronts the intruders of a break in, having no idea that the encounter will leave him dead. What’s more chilling is the truth of what the perpetrators were willing to kill for.

At the scene, DS Roy Grace senses that this is no mere botched robbery; it’s the tip of the iceberg of a nationwide crime epidemic. Ruthless gangs, operating with military precision, have discovered a new black market flourishing in the shadows – an unthinkable source of wealth even more profitable than drugs.

Grace’s investigation into this deadly trade pits him against people who will kill anyone who gets in their way, because where there is greed, there is murder.
