Investigative journalist, Dan Morris, was a man on a mission. He had already disrupted the illegal drugs trade in Bristol and was now determined to uncover a County Lines gang operating in South Devon. He believed huge amounts of cocaine and other drugs were flooding into Devon by land, sea and air. They were being traded in villages, towns and cities across the county. The police also knew that a drugs warehouse was located somewhere in their area, but where?
Detective Inspector Richard King and his team were busy trying to solve the mystery of a body washed up on Hope Cove beach; at the same time they were alerted to intimidation in the form of arson and criminal damage over a multi-million pound planning application. However, their priorities change when the journalist’s car is rammed over a cliff. King and his team must now try to stop the rise in drug trading and associated crimes.
As a detective, the hugely experienced inspector knew that suspects were not always what they seemed and his task was to uncover their deception. He was aware that the lives of some criminals and even his police colleagues were at risk as they closed in on the leader of the drug cartel. Sadly, he was to be proved right.
