When the safe of a TV personality is stolen in a bizarre burglary, Detective Inspector Mike Malone and his Detective Sergeant, Alan Shepherd, find that maybe, this time, they need a little extra help.
Enter Dog Dollond, a retired colleague of Mike’s from his days in London. As usual, solving the crime is never straightforward, especially as there seems to be a link to a gruesome murder in a nearby town.
When a murder occurs on Mike’s watch, he discovers a surprising thread running through all the crimes. But does it get him any closer to solving the puzzle?
