Waking in hospital several days after his near-fatal shooting, Harrow is determined to piece together the puzzle of who wanted him dead - before the unknown villain tries again. Senior Sergeant Nichols promises that the police are on the case, while concerned friends and family urge Harrow to rest - but of course, Harrow cannot. Harrow dives straight back into work. With the help of an intelligent and attractive new colleague Grace, his first case finds them investigating the tragic puzzle of a young mother's psychotic episode, while also doggedly pursuing the truth behind his own brush with death. Nothing is as it seems, and Harrow begins to doubt his usually infallible wits. But when his daughter Fern comes under threat, Harrow needs to dig deep, relying on his famous forensic skills - and a little luck - to solve the mystery of who is out to get him - a mystery that will throw into jeopardy everything Harrow holds dear.
