When Detective Sergeant Tony Martin suspects his boss, Rob Dean, of tampering with evidence connected to a guard’s murder at the Port of Auckland, he has no idea the homicide is linked to a trafficking ring smuggling migrants into New Zealand. Soon after the Port killing, a neighbour discovers Tony lying in a pool of blood in his backyard. Summer, Tony’s wife, refuses to accept the police report that her husband’s assailant was a passing opportunist and carries out her own investigations. She soon becomes suspicious of Rob Dean, believing he is involved in organised crime and had possibly arranged her husband’s assassination. Summer’s experience as a crime reporter and police media advisor, plus her determination to solve her husband’s death, brings her in close union with Tony’s friend and colleague, Detective Sergeant Mick Randall. But is Mick her friend or foe?
The deepening relationship between them is about to make or break Summer.
