When hordes of eighteen-year-olds descend on the Peninsula to celebrate the end of exams, the overstretched police of Waterloo know what to expect.  Party drugs, public drunkeness; maybe even drink spiking and sexual assault. What they don't count on is a brutal bashing that turns political.  The victim is connected.  And for Detective Inspector Hal Challis, newly embarked on a relationship with his sergeant, Ellen Destry, this is not the best time to have the brass on his back.  Especially when a bludgeoned corpse is found outside town and it becomes clear something much darker than adolescent craziness is going down.
