Fred is found dead – they deny it was murder.
Rose is in love – they say she’s in danger.
And that boy, Pinkie…. They say he’s evil – but what has he done?
As two seventeen year olds, Pinkie and Rose get embroiled in a vicious gang war in Brighton, one brutal murder leads to the next. The police are impassive – but the courageous and life embracing Ida Arnold wants the truth. Nothing scares her. Whatever the cost, she’ll see justice done.
