Brought to Britain for treatment, little Mira was adopted by Dan and his dutiful wife, Laura, under the watchful eye of a family friend.

As a former head boy, Headmistress Vivienne Ripman remembers Gideon as leader of a gang of ‘golden lads and girls'. But ex-girlfriend Manda Adelaide went missing after an attempted suicide and best friend Jamie Levinson has long since succumbed to drug addiction. Supported by DC Shepherd and the newly appointed DC Edwards, Vera and the team must track down Gideon's gang to uncover a lifetime of bullying and an unexpected story of tested loyalties and rough justice.

Vera investigates a fatal stabbing outside a busy Newcastle nightclub.

Having recently returned to Newcastle, John had been working at Finches, a large brewery run by Maggie's fiancé, Sam Harper. Lisa Strachan, John's childhood sweetheart, admits to rekindling their affair in recent months. Delving deeper into John's world, Vera uncovers a secret relationship with Sam's daughter, Eva and an under-hand plot to spy on the brewery for a multi-national company eager to buy out the family business.
