In Glasgow, Detective Inspector Orla McLeod and her partner
Luke Tyler work undercover. They plan to bring to an end
the brutal Tord Svensen's criminal empire. However,

spotted as infiltrating intruders. When the dust settles,
Luke is dead and the only person living who can identify
Tord is the nine-year-old boy who saved Orla's life even as
he watched his own mother killed.
Orla realizes that she must keep the lad Jamie Buchanan
safe, but Glasgow means death for the youngster. She takes
