When the body of a 16 year-old schoolgirl is found dead in her home in the middle of the afternoon, the investigating police cannot be sure a crime was even committed. With no forensic evidence and nothing to suggest the victim didn't die of natural causes, Matt and Ronnie question why they have been called out in the first place. However, the victim's mother is convinced her daughter was raped because she never slept naked. On further investigation, an unlikely murder weapon is uncovered and a likely suspect - someone with whom James Steel has a history. Determined the accused is guilty, James pursues him like a man possessed, pushing the boundaries of the law to the legal limit.
