It's the case that could make DS Alex Morrow's career, it would make any cop salivate.  A home invaded in the dead of night, deep in the heart of the cosy suburbs, a hard working family at the heart of it and a vulnerable old man taken hostage.  It's high profile:  a black-and-white case and it shouldn't be too hard to solve...

The attackers were slovenly.  The two strangers who forced their way into the warm comfortable home demanded millions the family didn't have and shouted for a man nobody had hear of.  It had to be a mistake, and a bad one at that.
