The Heights


What starts with the gruesome discovery of a
severed head on the Tube soon becomes personal for former
DI Cal Drake. After one betrayal too many, Drake has
abandoned the police force to become a private detective.
He’s teamed up with enigmatic forensic pathologist Dr
Rayhana Crane and it’s not long before the case leads
them to the darkest corners of the nation’s capital and
in dangerously close contact with an international crime
circuit, a brutal local rivalry and a very personal quest
for retribution. With the murder victim tied to Drake’s
past, his new future is about to come under threat.
