It begins, dramatically enough, with a trial for murder. The
distinguished criminal lawyer Venetia Aldridge is defending Garry Ashe on
charges of having brutally killed his aunt. For Aldridge the trial is mainly a

But now murder is in the air. The next victim will be Aldridge herself, stabbed

on her head. Enter Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team, whose struggle to
investigate and understand the shocking events cannot halt the spiral into more
horrors, more murders.
