Tennison meets up with her old adversary, sergeant Bill Otley, who is now working in Soho as well. Tennison begins to suspect a cover-up and her suspicions are confirmed. For the first time ever, she has to fight to keep control of the investigation as it becomes increasingly clear that her superiors have their own agenda.
