Superintendent Gregory Summers is co-operating with the National Crime Squad on an initiative to crack down on illegal immigrants. While he works to target these modern day slave traders, who make the unfortunate ‘slaves’ pay their own fare to the promised land, Antony Lucas, a young man adopted thirty years ago tracks down wealthy widow Elise Weissman, his birth mother. Antony is cautiously welcomed into the fold, but it isn’t long before an abusive past and family secrets threaten to destroy the family. Gregory Summers is drawn into the midst of the tangled affair when he realises Elise is an old friend in trouble. But piecing together the facts is a task that gets more difficult every day.
