When Robbie Bishop, star midfielder for the Bradfield Vics, is poisoned by a rare and deadly toxin, profiler Dr Tony Hill and trusted colleague DCI Carol Jordan have their work cut out for them.  Robbie was adored, so the public wants answers - but the answers aren't coming, and trails are running cold.

Then a bomb explodes in the football stadium, causing massive casualties - and another man dies from poisoning.  Is there a link between the cases?  And what are the motives for these crimes?
