When riots flare up in London, an undercover cop is found murdered in a burning car. The police's only lead is the officer's last report to his handler. He was close to discovering the identity of one of the organisers of the riots. Myles must throw himself into the London riots, mix with the unpredictable participants from London's ganglands, stretch the rule of law and risk blowing his own cover with unknowable consequences. All this while dating an actress who's living the dream he left behind; and seeing a shrink who thinks he's a compulsive liar.
A modern day serial killer is targeting witches. He burns his victims at the stake. The authorities want the murderer caught quickly. He's dragging an idyllic tourist area back into the Middle Ages. But police officers and witches are not natural allies. It's a difficult working relationship with suspicion on both sides. So when a witch who is also a successful businesswoman steps forward, eager to help, the investigation gets moving. Myles Morgan goes undercover to work with her, to draw out the killer. Unfortunately, Myles must get involved in witchcraft, despite the deep, personal, issues he has with anybody involved in the supernatural.
Road cyclist, Grace Watts, is usually the consummate professional. She handles the pressure and demands of being a top-flight athlete with ease. Yet, lately that's not the case. She’s upset by a series of anonymous letters. When the harrassment and intimidation intensifies, Grace refuses to involve the police. With the London Grand Prix approaching, it falls to Myles to protect the event’s poster girl. But without Grace's co-operation, and with a whole host of suspects, it’s no easy task. Add that to Myles's own battles with a senior officer and his only partial recovery from a previous, harrowing case that threatens his future in the police force.
