Summary

In the brilliant sequel to Field of Blood, reporter Paddy Meehan is riding high on the success of solving the Brian Wilcox case. Then an encounter with a mysterious blonde who later turns up dead draws Paddy into a web of violence and greed.

Paddy Meehan is thrilled with her new job: working the police beat at the newspaper.
