DI Liam McLusky, freshly transferred from Southampton and just recovered from having been injured in the line of duty, has not time to settle in before he is pushed in at the deep end in a new and unfamiliar city.
Everyday objects, transformed into explosive devises by a man trying to revenge himself on the world for reasons unknown, are being left across Bristol, maiming or killing those who pick them up.
Apart from the challenge of finding the perpetrator McLusky has to cope with new colleagues - especially his new right hand man DS James 'Jane' Austin - new superiors, new relationships... and the prospect of having his ex-partner move into the city to study there - and keep tabs on him...
