No ordinary cop, he's never happier than when he's working undercover, consorting with criminals and fighting to bring them to justice. What they cannot know is that their enquiries will take them both into the heart of one of London's most notorious criminal gangs - and one of them into the rifle sights of the enemy.
When Operation Surgical Strike goes horribly wrong, suspicion quickly falls on one of the officers involved: Stegs Jenner. No ordinary undercover cop, Stegs is a man who's always lived life on the edge. Now he decides to go it alone. DI John Gallan and his partner DS Tina Boyd are part of the subsequent investigation that will take them to the heart of one of London's most notorious criminal gangs. What they cannot know is that they've also embarked on a collision path that will lead one of them straight into the rifle sights of the enemy.
