Sono trascorse poche settimane da quello che è passato alla storia come il Gennaio di Sangue, e la violenza è di nuovo all'ordine del giorno per le strade di Glasgow. Un serial killer ossessionato da Elaine Scobie, figlia di un gangster locale, ha ucciso brutalmente il fidanzato della ragazza, incidendogli sul petto un macabro messaggio. Il rientro al lavoro dopo un breve congedo non potrebbe essere più complicato per Harry McCoy: in città sono sbarcate nuove droghe, che portano un nuovo tipo di violenza in una società già corrotta. La scia di morti sembra non fermarsi. E il passato di McCoy torna prepotente, rimbalza da un ritaglio di giornale, evoca ricordi terribili, chiede una resa dei conti che non si può più rimandare. Dopo Gennaio di sangue, il cinico ispettore scozzese torna ad affrontare se stesso e gli altri in un gioco teso e disperato che rischia di essergli fatale.
