Little Gloria Summers’ body has been found, hidden inside two plastic bin bags in a disused warehouse. Somewhere in the city, a child killer is on the loose. Then Emily Morrison vanishes and a week later there are still no clues. Years of patient police work have taught Inspector Charlie Resnick that those who jump to easy conclusions are often the last ones to solve a crime.

"British crime fiction's most impressive series of the last decade" Time Out "Charlie Resnick is one of the most fully realised characters in modern crime fiction; complex and capable, a man who not only loves justice, jazz and cats, but one who can turn the construction of a sandwich into a work of art" -- Sue Grafton
