Daisy Lane is gradually coming to terms with her troubled past. Roy Kemp, the notorious gangster and Daisy's former lover, is in prison along with the Kray twins. Daisy wants to enjoy her newfound freedom, but must watch over Roy's criminal empire in his absence, all the while attempting to continue her illicit relationship with Vinnie Endersby—just about the only straight-dealing cop in Gosport. But it isn't long before another gangster decides to challenge Roy's dominance. While Roy counts his days to freedom, the criminal landscape is changing, as vice and extortion are replaced by hard-core pornography and drugs. Soon, the bodies of mutilated girls are found dumped around the outskirts of Gosport—the deadly product of a ruthless gang. Meanwhile, Daisy must make a difficult choice. The greater the threat to Roy's empire, the more involved Daisy becomes in his life. But Vinnie and Daisy have waited years to be together. Before Daisy can make any decisions, matters take a deadly turn.
