D/C Paul Winter has gone undercover in an attempt to infiltrate the inner circle of the city's premier drug baron, Bazza Mackenzie.  Adrift in a world of easy money and brutally hard-won respect, Winter appears to be in his element.  Worryingly so ...

But headquarters' concerns about Winter are soon supplanted by two high-profile Portsmouth murders.  In the first, a property developer is shot dead with clinical efficiency, thus triggering Operation Billhook.  Next, a government minister visiting the city is assassinated by two helmeted motorcyclists while his car is stuck in rush-hour traffic.  A second investigation is launched, Operation Polygon.
