Tom Calladine is a detective inspector who is devoted to his job. His personal life, on the other hand, is not so successful. Having been married and divorced before the age of twenty-one has set a pattern that he finds difficult to escape.
Ruth Bayliss is in her mid-thirties, plain-speaking but loyal. She is balancing her professional life with taking care of a small child.
The fictional village of Leesdon is on the outskirts of an industrial northern English city. There is little work and numerous crime. The bane of Calladine’s life is the Hobfield housing estate, breeding ground to all that may be fallacious with the area that he calls home.
