Luglio 1973. In una Glasgow tormentata dal caldo l'intero dipartimento di polizia della città è impegnato nelle ricerche di Alice Kelly, una quindicenne scomparsa. L'unico escluso dal caso è Harry McCoy, a causa di vecchie ruggini con il nuovo superiore; per lui solo casi minori, come la morte per overdose di un musicista che fino a qualche anno prima era una vera rockstar, Bobby March. La sera prima della morte lo stesso McCoy era al concerto del chitarrista, e il mattino dopo lo osserva riverso in un letto d'albergo con la siringa ancora nel braccio. E se non fosse solo un incidente? McCoy torna a indagare nei bassifondi di una città che non dà scampo a nessuno, ragazzine ingenue, rockstar o criminali che siano. Un vortice elettrico, tra grande musica e un disperato bisogno di umanità.
