When another body is discovered on a golf course with exactly the same markings as Karen Howard, Tennison takes part in a TV reconstruction of the murder in a desperate attempt to motivate any witnesses to come forward.
The sole witness in DCI Tennison's murder investigation cannot positively identify the prime suspect George Marlow and Jane’s personal life takes a back seat as she digs further into the case.
A lead from one of Marlow's former cellmates might be just the breakthrough that Tennison needs, as the final pieces fall into place and the grisly truth is revealed.
