The body of a young Pole working in Cardiff is pulled from the River Taff. His tongue has been amputated in some sort of ritual. More murders in the Polish community take Inspector John Marco and his team into the East European immigrant community and the murky world of people trafficking. But what is it that links all the deaths together? When the evidence points to one of the city’s criminal and the involvement of a gangster from Poland Marco faces the challenge of gathering evidence from a close knit and secretive community. And why do the Polish Secret Service seem to be interested? When Marco finds himself entangled emotionally its impossible for him to think clearly. In search of an answer Marco travels to Poland only to find himself implicated in a murder and hoping he can avoid another. Racing back to Cardiff he hopes he has enough to unravel the case and arrest the perpetrators.
