It's a story rich in resonance: of how New Labour sold out, leaving the children of cities such as Nottingham easy prey for organised crime; and a perceptive study of how the abuse of girls like Jerry is fuelling one almighty tinderbox.

Synopsis

"Sarah Bone's political career has lifted off and now she's a minister for prisons. Ex-drug-dealer Nick Cane is missing her but keeping his distance - working tutoring a gifted young teenager in care and in a drug-rehab centre, the Power Project. Strangely, the Power Project don't seem too interested in what work he's doing, but when he takes the initiative of talking to the girls in the care home he's actively discouraged and becomes the victim of a violent attack in the street. What are they trying to hide? Meanwhile, Sarah is increasingly involved with charismatic lawyer Paul Morris, who has some surprising connections to the Power Project. But when he's found dead she becomes prime suspect and Nick Cane has to help her get to the bottom of who killed him."
